Return type

<str>

detector_name(pretty=False)[source]

Returns the name of the detector. For HOKUPAA+QUIRC, this is always ‘QUIRC’

Returns

Detector name

Return type

<str>

filter_name(pretty=False)[source]

This descriptor is used to display ‘WaveBand’ in the archive.

Parameters

pretty (<bool>) – This keyword parameter is present for API purposes. It has no effect for this descriptor.

Returns

wavelength band substituting for filter_name(pretty=True)

instrument(generic=False)[source]

Returns the name of the instrument making the observation

Parameters

generic (<bool>) – Request the generic instrument name, if applicable.

target_dec()[source]

Returns the Declination of the target in degrees. Optionally, the telescope offsets can be applied. The proper motion can also be applied if requested. Finally, the RA can be converted to ICRS coordinates.

Parameters
  • offset (bool) – If True, applies the telescope offsets.

  • pm (bool) – If True, applies proper motion parameters.

  • icrs (bool) – If True, convert the Declination to the ICRS coordinate system.

Returns

Declination of the target in degrees.

Return type

float

target_ra()[source]

Returns the Right Ascension of the target in degrees. Optionally, the telescope offsets can be applied. The proper motion can also be applied if requested. Finally, the RA can be converted to ICRS coordinates.

Parameters
  • offset (bool) – If True, applies the telescope offsets.

  • pm (bool) – If True, applies proper motion parameters.

  • icrs (bool) – If True, convert the RA to the ICRS coordinate system.

Returns

Right Ascension of the target in degrees.

Return type

float

wavelength_band()[source]

Returns the name of the bandpass of the observation.

Returns

Name of the bandpass.
