This function allows for the specification of celestial pole offsets for high-precision applications.

Namespace: ASCOM.Astrometry.NOVAS
Assembly: ASCOM.Astrometry (in ASCOM.Astrometry.dll) Version: 6.0.0.0 (6.1.1.2619)

Syntax

C#
public void CelPole(
	double del_dpsi,
	double del_deps
)
Visual Basic
Public Sub CelPole ( _
	del_dpsi As Double, _
	del_deps As Double _
)
Visual C++
public:
virtual void CelPole(
	double del_dpsi, 
	double del_deps
) sealed

Parameters

del_dpsi
Type: System..::..Double
Value of offset in delta psi (dpsi) in arcseconds.
del_deps
Type: System..::..Double
Value of offset in delta epsilon (deps) in arcseconds.

Remarks

These are added to the nutation parameters delta psi and delta epsilon.

1. This function sets the values of global variables 'PSI_COR'and 'EPS_COR' declared at the top of file 'novas.c'. These global variables are used only in NOVAS function 'earthtilt'.

2. This function, if used, should be called before any other NOVAS functions for a given date. Values of the pole offsets specified via a call to this function will be used until explicitly changed.

3. Daily values of the offsets are published, for example, in IERS Bulletins A and B.

4. This function is the "C" version of Fortran NOVAS routine "celpol".
