followed by: cd pyciss && pip install .


  • Miodrac Sremcevic for introducing me into some of the tricks of Saturn ring image analysis with Cassini ISS data and for producing a very nice resonance data file for the Saturn rings, here is one of his publications about it:
  • Sremčević, M., Stewart, G.R., Albers, N., Colwell, J.E., Esposito, L.W., 2008. Density Waves in Saturn’s Rings: Non-linear Dispersion and Moon Libration Effects. American Astronomical Society 40, 24.03–.
  • Morgan Rehnberg for providing me with Miodrag’s data file and answering some of my newbie questions.
  • James Huffman, John Cutler, and Matt Funk for improving the software
