Astrophotography suite


Astroart 8 is a complete software for astrophotography (image processing, astrometry, photometry, camera and telescope control) used in several universities.

All major cameras, telescopes, filter wheels and focusers are supported by Astroart. Updated plugins are released for free. Observatory automation can be done with simple scripts.

Astroart can be customized with image processing plugins, using the software development kit. Compatible with Windows 11, 10, 8, 7, XP. Compatible with WINE for image processing.

Advanced filters
Adaptive denoise, maximum entropy deconvolution, hot pixel removal, adaptive remove gradient, comet enhancement, unsharp mask, deblooming, DDP, FFT, masks, etc. with realtime preview.

Astrometry and photometry
Assisted by an integrated star atlas. Batch photometry, aperture photometry, plate solving, MPC reports, user annotations.

Image stacking
Extremely fast and accurate. Several algorithms for every situation (star fields, comets, planets, spectrums, etc).

Color imaging
Native 96 bit (32 bit for each color plane), visualized in real time without modifying the underlying data. Realtime debayering, LRGB combine, adaptive saturation, realtime color balance and color curves.

Instrumentation
Complete camera and telescope control. Scripts for automatic research and observatory automation, centering with fast plate solving, shortest-path telescope sequences.
