AstroUtilsUnRefract Method

Computes atmospheric refraction in zenith distance.

Namespace:  ASCOM.Astrometry.AstroUtils
Assembly:  ASCOM.Astrometry (in ASCOM.Astrometry.dll) Version: 3c9121baba46811fe6e53a58a05935662261416d
public double UnRefract(

Type: ASCOM.AstrometryOnSurface
Structure containing observer's location.
Type: ASCOM.AstrometryRefractionOption
1 ... Use 'standard' atmospheric conditions; 2 ... Use atmospheric parameters input in the 'Location' structure.
Type: SystemDouble
Observed zenith distance, in degrees.

Return Value

Type: Double
Unrefracted zenith distance in degrees.
This version computes approximate refraction for optical wavelengths. This function can be used for planning observations or telescope pointing, but should not be used for the reduction of precise observations.

Note: Unlike the NOVAS Refract method, Unrefract returns the unrefracted zenith distance itself rather than the difference between the refracted and unrefracted zenith distances.
