We are currently in the process of rewriting the sofware, stay tuned


starry_night requires python >= 3.5, we recommend the anaconda distribution as it comes with most requirements preinstalled.

pip install

Basic usage at night:

starry_night -c [Magic or CTA] --cam -v

to download and see the current all sky camera image. Other options such as --cloudmap and --response are available, too.

Option -s stores images as png file.

Option --help lists all available comments.

If you dont have an xserver, execute: export MPLBACKEND="agg" before running starry_night. You will also need -s option to get output in form of files.
