Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask, I have a very simple API question about astropy. I want to get the transform matrix for transforming from local, azimuth elevation coordinates to ICRS coordinates at a given time at a known location on the Earth. The documentation is clear about how to transform individual coordinates, but I want the matrix representation of transform at that time. It's fairly easy to reconstruct this matrix from multiple calls to the coordinate transforms, but for some of our analyses this is taking a relatively large fraction of computing time. Anyway, sorry if this is the wrong place ask. Thanks in advance.
