For me it is quite unusual to regard dev/beta/alpha in d/watch but
I have no idea about the motivation of the author of this file.  The
following very primitive change:

$ git diff
diff --git a/debian/watch b/debian/watch
index d6d7d78..2131bc2 100644
--- a/debian/watch
+++ b/debian/watch
@@ -1,4 +1,4 @@
 uversionmangle=s/(\d)[_\.\-\+]?((RC|rc|pre|dev|beta|alpha)\d*)$/$1~$2/ \
- http://pypi.debian.net/astroquery/astroquery-(\d\S*)\.tar\.gz
+ http://pypi.debian.net/astroquery/astroquery-(\d[.prec\d]*)\.tar\.gz

will lead to:

$ uscan --verbose --report

Newest version on remote site is 0.2.4, local version is 0.2.3+dfsg

and thus should solve your problem.  It should be discussed what kind of
"releases" you really want to track in d/watch and implement this in the
watch file propely.

Hope this helps
