Measure angles with Astro::Coords::Angle or the angle method of Astro::Coord::ECI.

Ok, great, thanks, I had forgotten the critical word ::Coords:: here.

Implement star catalogs with Astro-Catalog

I'm trying to get my head around that. If I gave you:

my $stern = 'aldebaran';

, could this locate it without having to hard code the position?

Locate stars with Astro::Coord::ECI::Star or Astro::Coords/Astro::Telescope:

Yeah, so this looks very nice and clean. I've just lopped it into the beginning of what I had before mixing the sources:

This is great progress, so I'm really pleased, and thanks for posting. I want to get away from as much hard-coding of values as possible. Let me ask this question:

How might we represent Orion as a perl data structure with as little cooking from scratch as possible? What about the Plieades?

Lots happening tonight, in the vicinity of Aldebaran....

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:

  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
