Marshall's Astronomical Software in Python
Various publicly-released open source codes can be found at my GitHub
page. In particular:
I also have plenty of code that's not yet been released into the wild:
- WebbPSF, a PSF simulation tool for the James Webb Space Telescope
- POPPY, a library for Physical Optics Propagation in Python.
a library for transforming vectors, positions, and rotations
between various rectilinear coordinate systems.
- Tools for working with Gemini Planet Imager data (unofficial/not
part of the supported IDL data pipeline)
- Various utility tools for pysynphot, such as plotting and automated SED model fitting.
- pysynpol, a package for synthetic polarimetry and modeling instrumental polarization, built on top of pysynphot.
- A wrapper for accessing MySQLDB database tables and converting the results into numpy recarrays
Getting Started with Python for Astronomy
Most of the information available previously on this page was obsolete. Please

for current information.
My Preferred method of installing python is with Macports.
There's a fairly extensive list of astronomy-related modules at
the SciPy astronomy page, and an even more extensive list over at this page.
