Much of RA is based on power measurements, and rtl_power was originally developed with RA in mind. However rtl_power is not yet entirely suited for RA. Typically an astronomer will perform their own corrections/calibrations to the data and convert it to degrees Kelvin, without ever touching decibels. So rtl_power needs that added to it, and this should be fixed soon. (The example picture here was generated with an rtl-sdr, but not using rtl_power.) Otherwise rtl_power is excellent for RA, because its easy scriptability makes it simple to automatically record transits and other events.
