nn7 on Freenode I'm just trying to get started using astropy. One of the first things I'm trying to do is convert HA,DEC into ALT,AZ
nn7 on Freenode or alt,az into ha,dec
nn7 on Freenode so far my path involves converting to RA, which requires much more information (EarthLocation) that really isn't necessary for HA
nn7 on Freenode I shouldn't need all the time and location information to do this transform, but every example I've found goes to RA not HA.

nn7 on Freenode ah, there we go!
