Under control


All numerical data and results in Astroart can be easily accessed and verified, using an intuitive user interface.

From a single pixel to a list of objects, everything is under control for reliable astrometry and photometry.
 

The browser


A very fast image browser let you analyze and select astronomical images.
The browser
The visualization can be changed in real time. Both single and grid modes are included.
 

Annotations


Annotations are figures and label placed over the image, on an separated layer.
MPC reports
They are saved as Comments in the FITS Header, so they are not lost even if you process the image with other software. They can be shared and edited with the free AvisFV FITS viewer.
 

Comet analysis


Several filters (MCM, RW, rotational gradient) can be used to study faint structures and jets inside comets.

These filters are performed with realtime preview, to easily find the best parameters.

Astrometry and photometry


The astrometric and photometric calibration is a key feature of Astroart since its first release. It can be assisted by a star atlas which supports all major catalogs.
Astrometry
Photometry on sequences can be quickly setup, and custom reports with graphs can be easily generated.

Astrometry with plate solving


Astrometry can be done also with a single mouse click using the integrated plate solving engine.
Plate solving

Reports


After measuring the coordinates or magnitude of a celestial object, a formatted report can be quickly displayed:
MPC reports
The example above shows a MPC report. Other reports (AAVSO for example) can be created with the command Batch Photometry or with scripts.
 

The star atlas


Optimized for millions of stars and minor planets, it can explore the fields in realtime (all stars, up to 21° magnitude and one million minor planets).
