query_region(*args, **kwargs)

Queries the service and returns a table object.

Queries a region around the specified coordinates. Either a radius or both a height and a width must be provided.

Parameters
coordinatesstr or astropy.coordinates.

coordinates around which to query

radiusstr or astropy.units.Quantity.

the radius of the cone search

widthstr or astropy.units.Quantity

the width for a box region

heightstr or astropy.units.Quantity

the height for a box region

get_query_payloadbool, optional

Just return the dict of HTTP request parameters.

cache: bool, optional

Use the astroquery internal query result cache

Returns
tableA Table object.
query_region_async(coordinates, radius=None, height=None, width=None, get_query_payload=False, cache=True)[source]

Queries a region around the specified coordinates. Either a radius or both a height and a width must be provided.

Parameters
coordinatesstr or astropy.coordinates.

coordinates around which to query

radiusstr or astropy.units.Quantity.
