This PR started with the goal to replace gammapy/utils/coordinates/ (that code is older than Astropy and somehow survived until now) with use of astropy.coordinates, continuing #2185 from yesterday. This PR implements many things noted in #977, but I won't do all here (e.g. not write a high-level tutorial notebook).

The only caller of that code is gammapy.astro.population, in and

I quickly started noticing bugs and issues there, so by now this PR is mostly a mixed bag of improvements in gammapy.astro code, docstrings and tests.

  • Remove add_observed_source_parameters - it was buggy, not tested, and not really useful
  • Improve make_catalog_random_positions_cube and make_catalog_random_positions_sphere
  • Add tests with asserts on all columns and units from the functions in
  • Remove PWN.luminosity_tev and L_PWN in It was the energy dumped by the pulsar in erg, but there was no radiation model or timescale and thus no luminosity to give.
  • Remove Pulsar.luminosity_tev (not useful, just callse Pulsar.luminosity_spindown and multiplies with a number the user passes in.
  • Change Pulsar attribute from logB to B to avoid ambiguity concerning log_10 or log_e.
  • Change from validate_physical_type to pass through Quantity, like we do everywhere else in Gammapy
  • Put method description in the main part of the docstring, instead of always having it in a Notes section. That's IMO a bit shorter, easier to grok, and more consistent with the rest of Gammapy / Astropy.

The diff here is already ~ 500 lines, hard to review. I'm merging this now, and will send a follow-up PR to rewrite gammapy/utils/coordinates/ and the coords code in gammapy.astro.population.
