[AstroPy] Pywcs not reading transformation matrix correctly
Thu Jul 26 12:10:07 CDT 2012
Which version of Astropy are you using?
I'm using the latest developer version, and it seems to be working:
CD_11 CD_12: -7.7588993045300006e-05 4.5042903792000001e-07
CD_21 CD_22: -3.9690360471000002e-07 -7.7631469153300006e-05
CRVAL : 343.48506545599997 16.146689138399999
CRPIX : 1094.26737976 1037.5606839899999
NAXIS : 0.0 0.0
If you are using v0.1, could you try updating to the latest git
version to see if it was fixed?
