  Description      : Astrometric registration of images

ASTROALIGN is a python module that will try to register (align) two stellar
astronomical images, especially when there is no WCS information available.

It does so by finding similar 3-point asterisms (triangles) in both images
and estimating the affine transformation between them.

This is a popular astropy affiliated package. It will be maintained under the
umbrella of the Debian Astro team. A salsa repo was created at
