- sunpy.coordinates.spice.get_fov(instrument, time, *, resolution=100)#
Get the field of view (FOV) for an instrument via SPICE.
Rectangular and polygonal FOVs are represented by their vertices. Circular FOVs are approximated by a series of points. This function does not yet support elliptical FOVs.
The FOV determined from SPICE kernels may not be as accurate as the FOV obtained from other sources of information, particularly if the instrument is an imager.
astropy.time.Time) – Time to use in a parse_time-compatible format.
int) – Number of points to use for a circular FOV. Defaults to 100.
