+poppy: Physical Optics Propagation in Python
+================================================
+
+
+This module implements an object-oriented system for modeling physical optics propagation with diffraction, particularly for telescopic and coronagraphic imaging.
+
+It was developed originally as part of WebbPSF, but is a stand-alone system capable of being used for
+modeling of optical systems other than JWST.
+
+For documentation, see http://www.stsci.edu/~mperrin/software/webbpsf/poppy.html
+
+Most code by Marshall Perrin, with some contributions from Anand Sivaramakrishnan, Remi Soummer, and others.
