Installation Instructions

Compatibility Notes

If you’re on Mac OS, it should be noted that the Antares client library has a dependency that only supports Mac OS 10.13 or later. If you try to run ./manage.py migrate on an earlier version, you may see an error.

tom-nonsidereal-airmass

This module provides a templatetag supporting visibility plots for non-sidereal targets. This plugin is fully supported by the TOM Toolkit team; however, non-sidereal visibility calculations require the PyEphem library, which is minimally supported while its successor is in development. The library used for the TOM Toolkit sidereal visibility, astroplan, does not yet support non-sidereal visibility calculations.
