[docs]def plot_finder_image(target, survey='DSS', fov_radius=10*u.arcmin, log=False, ax=None, grid=False, reticle=False, style_kwargs=None, reticle_style_kwargs=None): """ Plot survey image centered on ``target``. Survey images are retrieved from NASA Goddard's SkyView service via ``astroquery.skyview.SkyView``. If a `~matplotlib.axes.Axes` object already exists, plots the finder image on top. Otherwise, creates a new `~matplotlib.axes.Axes` object with the finder image. Parameters ---------- target : `~astroplan.FixedTarget`, `~astropy.coordinates.SkyCoord` Coordinates of celestial object survey : string Name of survey to retrieve image from. For dictionary of available surveys, use ``from astroquery.skyview import SkyView; SkyView.list_surveys()``. Defaults to ``'DSS'``, the Digital Sky Survey. fov_radius : `~astropy.units.Quantity` Radius of field of view of retrieved image. Defaults to 10 arcmin. log : bool, optional Take the natural logarithm of the FITS image if `True`. False by default. ax : `~matplotlib.axes.Axes` or None, optional. The `~matplotlib.axes.Axes` object to be drawn on. If None, uses the current `~matplotlib.axes.Axes`. grid : bool, optional. Grid is drawn if `True`. `False` by default. reticle : bool, optional Draw reticle on the center of the FOV if `True`. Default is `False`. style_kwargs : dict or `None`, optional. A dictionary of keywords passed into `~matplotlib.pyplot.imshow` to set plotting styles. reticle_style_kwargs : dict or `None`, optional A dictionary of keywords passed into `~matplotlib.pyplot.axvline` and `~matplotlib.pyplot.axhline` to set reticle style. Returns ------- ax : `~matplotlib.axes.Axes` Matplotlib axes with survey image centered on ``target`` hdu : `` FITS HDU of the retrieved image Notes ----- Dependencies: In addition to Matplotlib, this function makes use of astroquery.
