Hi,
Is there any python function to cross-identify the stars between different
frames and calculate the coefficients of coordinate transformation
equations?
If not, i am planning to implement it by first running daofind using pyraf
and then trying to match triangles; starting from brightest stars.
Is there any better/easier way to do this?
Thanking you,
Joe
