MATLAB versions of several NOVAS (Naval Observatory Vector Astrometry Software) subroutines. A MATLAB script that demonstrates how to compute sidereal time using these functions is provided. Additional info about NOVAS, including documentation, can be found at www.usno.navy.mil/USNO/astronomical-applications/software-products/novas.
When using jplephem how do you set ephname to DE430 and what format should it be in? I want to use apstar to find the high precision position of a star.
Thanks very much, The code help me to calculate star's position. Really thanks !!!!!
astcon is required and not provided
Added new functions; apstar, tpstar, applan, tpplan, place, etc.
Added additional NOVAS-based MATLAB functions to the novas.zip archive.
