plate solver coordinates

Post by renato » 23 Jan 2020, 15:41

Hello, is it correct that ASTAP returns J2000 coodinates? There is some function to choice between J2000 and observed (Jnow) coordinates?

Thank you!

No problem, it is always J2000. The database is J2000 so the result is also J2000. There is no routine to convert it. But all maps and info about objects is in J2000 so it doesn't make sense to convert it to Jnow. All other solvers also report in J2000 for the same reason.

I can only move post within HNSKY forum but not to the ASTAP forum ( different database). Post it next time in the ASTAP forum

Clear skies, Han
