hcam_finder 0.2.0

Observation planning and finding charts for HiPerCAM


Observation planning and finding charts for HiPerCAM

hcam_finder provides a Python script hfinder for generating finding charts for HiPerCAM on the WHT and GTC. hcam_finder is written in Python and is based on TKinter. It should be compatible with Python2 and Python3.


The software is written as much as possible to make use of core Python components. It requires my own hcam_widgets module. It also relies on the third party libraries astropy for astronomical calculations and catalog lookup, as well as ginga for image display. Optionally, you can also use astroquery to expand the range of surveys one can download images from.

Once you have installed these, install with the usual:

pip install .

or if you don’t have root access:

pip install --user .
