pyast is designed for this. The Plot classes are specifically there to
support what you are asking. You define a Plot and then a mapping from your
world coordinates to the plot window. It goes both ways so supports the
feedback of you getting an ra/dec from a position on the plot as well as
putting markers and lines on the plot using ra/dec.
