FK5 Override

Postby max » Wed Jul 23, 2014 4:45 am

Is there a way that I can turn off the PM, NUT and PREC rotations in FK5 reduction and only apply ST during propagations? I want EarthFIxed coordinates without the complicated dynamics; only include sidereal time calculations. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!!

I don't know of a way to do that (easily, anyway), but other folks here might.

Off the top of my head, you might need to code the Fixed-to-Inertial conversion yourself in the script; how complicated is that without all of the nutation/precession terms? You would define your input state as variables, convert them manually, and use an inertial system throughout the rest of your script.
