waldo is Dorado’s tool for various search tasks. waldo has the ability to plate-solve a FITS image via astrometry.net and return the image with a WCS header mounted. waldo has the ability to find stars in a FITS image and return relevent information that can be used to plot the stars or be used in further calculations.


dorado.waldo Package

This is the docstring for the examplesubpkg package. Normally you would have whatever.py files in this directory implementing some modules, but this is just an example sub-package, so it doesn’t actually do anything.


plate_solve(data, image_file_path[, …])

plate_solve takes fits image file data and the corresponding file string to the data and calls nova.astrometry.net to obtain and then integrate WCS into the HDU.
