I am newbie in ROS and I am thinking of using ROS as a basis for building a robotic telescope but there is a question about the reference frames that I would like to know the opinion of the experts.
A telescope points celestial objects tipicaly using equatorial coordinates. Other coordinates are also used such as horizontal, ecliptic or galactic or in general any of the celestial coordinate systems
I know al the transformations between this coords systems but I am very confuse how to match to the ROS reference frames (earth, map, odom…) What is the best way to implement this reference frames in ROS?
Thank you in advance
