This morning I found this Python package form a post on the iObserve FB wall.



The current release already contains the following functionality:

Astropy also includes a lot of infrastructure code that makes it very easy for users to develop their own Astronomy packages, using Astropy as a core dependency.

Then I tried to download and install in on my mac. 

The size of the installing file is just about 5Mb only.

After installing it, I did some tests by following its examples from the document.

It's really helpful, and now I do not have to convert all my shell scripts to Python codes.

It saves my lots of time :P



You should give it a try!
