Installing Montage

Montage is a package developed by IPAC designed to handle the reprojection of FITS files. APLpy relies on Montage for several functions, such as make_rgb_cube() or the north=True argument in FITSFigure. To use these features, Montage needs to be installed.

Obtaining and installing Montage

Montage can be downloaded from http://montage.ipac.caltech.edu/docs/download.html

Installation instructions are provided at http://montage.ipac.caltech.edu/docs/build.html

Once Montage is correctly installed, you are ready to use the Montage-dependent features of APLpy!
