Class Besselian

All Implemented Interfaces:, Component

public class Besselian
extends CoordinateSystem
implements Component
This class implements Besselian coordinate systems. These systems are not simple rotations from the reference coordinate frame. These coordinate systems are implemented such that the rotation matrix is appropriate for J2000 coordinates but the rectify and derectify function perform transformation from/to Besselian coordinates. The transformations do not use any proper motion or distance information supplied by the user. The methods in this class are based on P. Wallaces SLA library substantially modified for use within Java and SkyView.
