One big motivating reason for is to collect and share snippets or other scripts that could be reused by other astronomers and help facilitate their research.

So I've found it hard to get started with pyraf because I lack good script examples *in* python for doing some basic reductions. I so often find cl scripts to be untranslatable/unreadable in general.

So my question is if anyone will post some pyraf scripting examples?  Something simple like stacking a set of images or measuring the centroids of stars on a set of images or take random sky measurements across an image.
