[docs]class galactocentric_frame_defaults(ScienceState): """This class controls the global setting of default values for the frame attributes in the `~astropy.coordinates.Galactocentric` frame, which may be updated in future versions of ``astropy``. Note that when using `~astropy.coordinates.Galactocentric`, changing values here will not affect any attributes that are set explicitly by passing values in to the `~astropy.coordinates.Galactocentric` initializer. Modifying these defaults will only affect the frame attribute values when using the frame as, e.g., ``Galactocentric`` or ``Galactocentric()`` with no explicit arguments. This class controls the parameter settings by specifying a string name, which can be one of: - 'pre-v4.0': The current default value, which sets the default frame attribute values to their original (pre-astropy-v4.0) values. - 'v4.0': The attribute values as updated in Astropy version 4.0. - 'latest': An alias of the most recent parameter set (currently: 'v4.0') See :ref:`astropy-coordinates-galactocentric-defaults` for more information.

[docs]@format_doc(base_doc, components=doc_components, footer=doc_footer) class Galactocentric(BaseCoordinateFrame): r""" A coordinate or frame in the Galactocentric system. This frame allows specifying the Sun-Galactic center distance, the height of the Sun above the Galactic midplane, and the solar motion relative to the Galactic center. However, as there is no modern standard definition of a Galactocentric reference frame, it is important to pay attention to the default values used in this class if precision is important in your code. The default values of the parameters of this frame are taken from the original definition of the frame in 2014. As such, the defaults are somewhat out of date relative to recent measurements made possible by, e.g., Gaia. The defaults can, however, be changed at runtime by setting the parameter set name in `~astropy.coordinates.galactocentric_frame_defaults`. The current default parameter set is ``"pre-v4.0"``, indicating that the parameters were adopted before ``astropy`` version 4.0. A regularly-updated parameter set can instead be used by setting ``galactocentric_frame_defaults.set ('latest')``, and other parameter set names may be added in future versions. To find out the scientific papers that the current default parameters are derived from, use ``galcen.frame_attribute_references`` (where ``galcen`` is an instance of this frame), which will update even if the default parameter set is changed. The position of the Sun is assumed to be on the x axis of the final, right-handed system. That is, the x axis points from the position of the Sun projected to the Galactic midplane to the Galactic center -- roughly towards :math:`(l,b) = (0^\circ,0^\circ)`. For the default transformation (:math:`{\rm roll}=0^\circ`), the y axis points roughly towards Galactic longitude :math:`l=90^\circ`, and the z axis points roughly towards the North Galactic Pole (:math:`b=90^\circ`). For a more detailed look at the math behind this transformation, see the document :ref:`coordinates-galactocentric`. The frame attributes are listed under **Other Parameters**.
