Description

Add a calculation of atmospheric refraction and utilities for differential refraction to the stack. These calculations are needed for the DCR-corrected templates that are being written in DM-9615, but they can be made more general and separated from the rest of the DCR code.

Review completed on GitHub at Ian Sullivan's request. Lots of little, minor things to think about. One major issue: please don't hard-wire LSST-specific values as defaults.

This ended up extending to modifying obs_base, obs_decam, and obs_lsstSim to make sure those packages return weather parameters that are useable for calculating refraction.
