I am trying to access the coordinate information of all galaxies, stars, etc, available to the new astronomical data incorparated to Mathematica. However, the suggested (documented) approach fails. Trying to get the declination for al objects in
GalaxyData I tried:
QuantityMagnitude@UnitConvert[GalaxyData[GalaxyData, "Declination"], "degrees"];
GalaxyData[GalaxyData, "Declination"] is the actual database access part, the rest of the expression tries to get rid of all the units. However, I get many error messages and finally it aborts. The error message reads:
The error is the same if I replace
StarData. The same approach works though if I query the
"AparentMagnitude" property, or e.g.
"DistanceFromSun". Any idea how to work around this?
