Marshall's Astronomical Software in PythonVarious publicly-released open source codes can be found at my GitHub page. In particular:
- WebbPSF, a PSF simulation tool for the James Webb Space Telescope
- POPPY, a library for Physical Optics Propagation in Python.
- cartesiancoords, 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 AstronomyMost of the information available previously on this page was obsolete. Please see the Python setup page at AstroBetter or the Python4Astronomers tutorial for current information.
My Preferred method of installing python is with Macports.
