Pix2Sky_ConicEquidistant

class astropy.modeling.projections.Pix2Sky_ConicEquidistant(sigma=90.0, delta=0.0, **kwargs)[source] [edit on github]

Bases: astropy.modeling.projections.Pix2SkyProjection, astropy.modeling.projections.Conic

Conic equidistant projection - pixel to sky.

Corresponds to the COD projection in FITS WCS.

See Conic for a description of the entire equation.

The projection formulæ are:

\[\begin{split}C &= \frac{180^\circ}{\pi} \frac{\sin\theta_a\sin\eta}{\eta} \\ R_\theta &= \theta_a - \theta + \eta\cot\eta\cot\theta_a \\ Y_0 = \eta\cot\eta\cot\theta_a\end{split}\]
Parameters:

sigma : float

\((\theta_1 + \theta_2) / 2\), where \(\theta_1\) and \(\theta_2\) are the latitudes of the standard parallels, in degrees. Default is 90.

delta : float

\((\theta_1 - \theta_2) / 2\), where \(\theta_1\) and \(\theta_2\) are the latitudes of the standard parallels, in degrees. Default is 0.
