Module for manipulating Sextractor source catalogs. Currently supports opening ASCII-Head and FITS-LDAC catalogs, returning a FITS/astropy Table object

sexcat_to_ds9 script

The module also includes a command line script to create an SAOImage ds9 region file from a Sextractor source catalog.

Future Improvements

  • Better documentation and options for sexcat_to_ds9 script
  • Wrapping the sextractor command-line binary, optionally supplying command line options
  • Manipulation of Sextractor configuration files
