    Question Using pinpoint to extract source positions?

    Using full Pinpoint, I have an .sx file which lists the sources on the fits file, but only with pixel coordinates. Is there an easy way to convert these to RA and DEC?
    Thanks.

    Where did we just discuss this? I recall having this discussion somewhere, including my posting script code. If it wasn't you then I'll answer it here.
