Astroart 8 is a software for image processing, image analysis, astrometry and photometry, used in several universities.
Using plug-ins, most cameras, telescopes, filter wheels, focusers and domes can be controlled for research. Observatory automation can be done with simple scripts.
Astroart can be customized with image processing plug-ins, using the software development kit. Compatible with Windows 11, 10, 8, 7, XP. Compatible with WINE for image processing.
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.
Extremely fast and accurate. Several algorithms for every situation (star fields, comets, planets, spectrums, etc).
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.
Complete camera and telescope control. Scripts for automatic research and observatory automation, centering with fast plate solving, shortest-path telescope sequences.
Astroart is a fast multi-threaded application, optimized with SIMD code. It can align and stack hundreds of images quickly and offers realtime preview on most filters.
A demo version of Astroart is available at the download page.
