Ccdproc has the following requirements:

  • astropy v0.4 or later
  • numpy
  • scipy

One easy way to get these dependencies is to install a python distribution like anaconda.

Installing ccdproc

Using pip

To install ccdproc with pip, simply run:

pip install --no-deps ccdproc


The --no-deps flag is optional, but highly recommended if you already have Numpy installed, since otherwise pip will sometimes try to “help” you by upgrading your Numpy installation, which may not always be desired.
