[submitted] fastrometry: Fast world coordinate solution solver

Fastrometry is a Python implementation of the fast world coordinate solution solver for the FITS standard astronomical image. When supplied with the approximate field center (+-25%) and the approximate field scale (+-10%) of the telescope and detector system the astronomical image is from, fastrometry provides WCS solutions almost instantaneously. The algorithm is also originally implemented with parallelism enabled in the Windows FITS image processor and viewer CCDLAB (ascl:2206.021).
