New blink routine in ASTAP

Post by han.k » 13 Aug 2018, 21:34

The development continuous. The latest ASTAP version 0.9.92 has a blink routine (for FITS files) to detect minor planets or nova or just make a video of a comet moving:

Youtube demonstration:

At the moment the blink sequence can't be exported , but you could capture it by a screen capture program.

So ASTAP has become more a software suite. The main functionalities are:

- FITS viewer and manipulator including annotation of deep sky objects and stars.
- Stacking program, blinker
- Plate solver with two types of command line interfaces, remote accessible.
