# AltitudeConstraint¶

class astroplan.AltitudeConstraint(min=None, max=None, boolean_constraint=True)[source]

Constrain the altitude of the target.

Note

This can misbehave if you try to constrain negative altitudes, as the AltAz frame tends to mishandle negative

Parameters: Minimum altitude of the target (inclusive). None indicates no limit. Maximum altitude of the target (inclusive). None indicates no limit. boolean_constraint : bool If True, the constraint is treated as a boolean (True for within the limits and False for outside). If False, the constraint returns a float on [0, 1], where 0 is the min altitude and 1 is the max.
