Dear All, 

A colleague has suggested I use splot for investigating some optical spectra. 
However, I don’t have IRAF installed, and would be much keener to use a 
Python tool here. 

I know PyRAF exists, but the examples there seem extremely minimal. 
Aside from writing one’s own Python/AstroPy reader code, what is the 
current best replacement for splot and looking at e.g. optical spectra
FITS data??

Yours, 
Nic
