Astrophysical routines.




version badge licence badge pythons badge


Set of modules developed in Astronomical Institute of Wroclaw University. Contains wrappers for daophot package, star lists manipulation as pandas DataFrames with export/import to daophot and ds9 formats, genetic algorithm for searching for optimal PSF stars and other.


$ pip install astwro

You should setup paths to executables (e.g. your daophot). See documentation.


Package contains following modules:

  • pydaophot - wrapper for Peter Stetson’s DAOPHOT photometry suite:

d = astwro.pydaophot.Daophot(image='i.fits')
res = d.PHotometry(IS=35, OS=50, apertures=[8])
  • starlist - provides pandas objects for stars list, with import/export do daophot and ds9 formats.

s = res.photometry_starlist.sort_values('mag')
psf = astwro.starlist.read_dao_file('i.lst')
astwro.starlist.write_ds9_regions('i.reg', color='blue', indexes=[psf.index], colors=['red']) # PSF stars red
  • utils - some helpers for scripts.

dir = astwro.utils.tempdir('i.lst')
f = open(os.path.join(dir.path,'notimportant.txt'), 'w')
  • tools - command line (callable form python also) tools including gapick for finding optimal PSF-stars set using generic algorithm.

$ -od results -c i.coo i.fits
