Hello! I'm considering switching from PyEphem to AstroPy, but there's some functionality in PyEphem that I haven't been able to find in AstroPy. I'd like to show characteristics of an object like apparent and absolute magnitude, phase, constellation/asterism, and size (in arcseconds). Is there a way to do this in AstroPy, or in an affiliated package? Thanks!
