Coordinate systems and UV mapping

To observe any astrophysical source at some position in the sky, we have to define some “observational frame of reference”. These frames of reference most commonly assume the observer at rest in the frame, although not necessarily located at its origin. As we shall see, this provides us with a relationship between the location of the observer and the position of the source we wish to observe.
