Axes fixed

Contour RA-Dec plots are now beautiful.

Random position generator

Given the code to get me going. Set up a randomu and manipulated the arrays to have values within the RA's and Dec's of the GOODS-N field. Spherematched these with actual data positions to accommodate the odd shape of the footprint. Plotted 500 of the random sample of stars (and oplotted the GOODS survey), so check that they overlapped properly. Oddly, the Dec's range was fine, but the outer endges of the RA's got chopped off. Wasn't obvious to me how this happened by looking at the code, so this will be addressed tomorrow.

Random position cont...

-check out why edges got cut off
-make for southern field
-emperical comparison to observed stars' positions
