Changelog

0.9 (unreleased)

  • Fix time range in months_observable to not be only in 2014. Function now accepts argument time_range and defaults to the current year. [#458]

0.8 (2021-01-26)

  • Fix Read The Docs compatibility [#497]

  • Move to APE 17 infrastructure, change to github actions [#493]

  • Update conda channel in favor of conda-forge [#491]

  • Fix for astropy cache compatibility [#481]

0.7 (2020-10-27)

  • Fix compatibility with Astropy 4.X

0.6 (2019-10-08)

  • Added documentation for reproducing MMTO sun rise/set times [#434]

  • Deprecation of MAGIC_TIME variable, which used to be returned for targets that don’t rise or set [#435]

  • Replace deprecated astroquery service [#431]

  • Fix for the broken IERS patch [#418, #425]

  • Add GalacticLatitudeConstraint to constrain the galactic latitudes of targets. This can be useful for planning surveys for which crowding due to Galactic point sources is an issue. [#413]

  • Add n_grid_points keyword argument to rise/set/transit functions which allows usersto trade off precision for speed. [#424]

0.5 (2019-07-08)

  • observability_table now accepts scalars as time_range arguments, and gives 'time observable' in this case in the resulting table. [#350]

  • Bug fixes [#414, #412, #407, #401]

0.4 (2017-10-23)

  • Added new eclipsing module for eclipsing binaries and transiting exoplanets [#315]

  • Fixes for compatibility with astropy Quantity object updates [#336]

  • Better PEP8 compatibility [#335]

  • Using travis build stages [#330]

0.3 (2017-09-02)

  • Observer.altaz and Constraint.__call__ no longer returns an (MxN) grid of results when called with M target``s and N ``times. Instead, we attempt to broadcast the time and target shapes, and an error is raised if this is not possible. This change breaks backwards compatibility but an optional argument grid_times_targets has been added to these methods. If set to True, the old behaviour is recovered. All Observer methods for which it is relevant have this optional argument.

  • Updates for compatibility with astropy v2.0 coordinates implementation [#311], updates to astropy-helpers [#309], fix pytest version [#312]

0.2.1 (2016-04-27)

  • Internal changes to the way calculations are done means that astropy>=1.3 is required [#285]

  • Fixed bug when scheduling block list is empty [#298]

  • Fixed bug in Transitioner object when no transition needed [#295]

  • Update to astropy-helpers 1.3.1 [#294] and compatibility fixes for astropy 1.3 [#283]

0.2 (2016-09-20)

  • Fixed bug arising from changes to distutils.ConfigParser [#177, #187, #191]

  • Removed the sites module from astroplan, since it was ported to astropy [#168]

  • Removed dependence on PyEphem, now using jplephem for the solar system ephemeris [#167]

  • New API for scheduling observations (still in development)

  • New plot_finder_image function makes quick finder charts [#115]

  • Updates to astropy helpers and the package template [#177, #180]
