  • Q: I get an error mentioning something (e.g. Astropy) isn’t available, but I did install it.

    A: Check that you’re using the right python and that your PYTHONPATH isn’t pointing to places that aren’t appropriate for this Python (usually it’s best to not set it at all) using these commands:

    which python
    echo $PYTHONPATH
    python -c 'import astropy'

Known issues

  • Astropy <3.0.5 and Matplotlib 3.0

There is an incompatibility between WCSAxes and Matplotlib 3.0, which causes the inline plotting in notebooks to fail. The issue as well as a temporary workaround is described here.
