[AstroPy] Fitting ellipses and higher order moments

Dear all,

as I think this is rather specific "astro" tool:

would anybody be aware of a python routine/module doing ellipse-fitting (with 
higher order Fourier moments) on photometric images? This obviously exists in 
IRAF, MIDAS, idl, ... but I am looking for an integrated python version.

thanks and cheers
Eric
