[AstroPy] Heliocentric Velocity Correction
Tue Mar 13 14:58:06 CDT 2012
There are heliocentric velocity routines which have many of the major
observatories in pyslalib (which wraps the GPL'd version of SLALIB).
See the sla_earth routine for a description (and for a way of getting
even more accurate values).
PS: There is a _lot_ of other high-quality functionality in SLALIB
(which is all wrapped by pyslalib) as well...
