Coordinates option

If you have a set of coordinate missions for example for mosaic but do not know what area they actually cover then coordinates option can be useful. Command ‘python coordinates’ recursively goes through subdirectories and finds all .fit files where coordinate information is encoded into the file name. For Slooh coordinate missions the coordinates are in the filename in format HHMMDD{p|n}HHMMDD.

Found coordinates are printed as a comma separated list. That list can be copied into Astro Mosaic tool target box to see what panels are available.

If you are mixing different telescopes then some panels are not correct since telescope information is not available at this format.
