adempus on Freenode I'm trying to extract specific information from a Simbad VOTable query response. Does anyone know how this is done using astropy?

adempus: would need more information about this to know for sure, but the basic idea is that you would use astropy.io.votable.parse('yourfile’), and then work with that object to extract the information - see http://docs.astropy.org/en/stable/io/votable/ for more on the votable sub-package
