Astrophotography software


Astroart 8 is a complete software for image processing, analysis, astrometry, photometry, camera and telescope control.

All major cameras, telescopes, filter wheels and focusers are supported for astrophotography. Observatory automation can be done with simple scripts.

Astroart is an open system based on plug-ins. It's used for science and education in several universities thanks to its friendly license. Several papers and discoveries have been made with it.

 

Astrometry and photometry
Assisted by an integrated star atlas, single and batch photometry, aperture photometry, plate solving, automated reports, user annotations.

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

Image stacking
Extremely fast and accurate. Several algorithms for every situation (star fields, minor planets, spectrums, etc) with correction of optical distortions.

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, easy to use for astrophotography.

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

High speed
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.
