Astronomy CCD capture software
A CCD capture software intended for the amateur astronomer. It include all the features required to perform digital imaging CCD observation of celestial objects. Using the standard drivers protocol INDI and ASCOM it can connect and control the CCD camera, the focuser, the filter wheel and the telescope mount. This software is part of a full suite for astronomical observation: https://sourceforge.net/projects/skychart/ https://sourceforge.net/projects/indistarter/ https://sourceforge.net/projects/eqmodgui/ Requirement: https://sourceforge.net/projects/libpasastro/ See also: https://sourceforge.net/projects/indi/
PP3 creates celestial charts. It generates resolution independent sky maps of very high graphical quality. They can be used for example as illustrations in books or on web pages. Databases are included but you may use own data if you wish.
Simple astronomical CCD controller
This program supports TSNK-lab ICX285AL cameras, QHY5, QHY6, QHY9, QHY8L, DSI2PRO, DSLR. It works with Mono images of 8, 12, 16 bits and RGB images of 24, 48 bits. Photo and video modes can be used. Histogram control of preview is available. There are two modes of capture: single frame mode and series.
INDI is an instrument neutral distributed interface control protocol that aims to provide backend driver support and automation for a wide range of Astronomical devices (telescopes, focusers, CCDs..etc).
Parallel Iterative Deconvolution is a multithreaded ImageJ plugin for iterative image deblurring.
gSky Digest is a system tray desktop application that presents astronomy events calculated for your home location. Currently it comes with detailed information about the Sun, the Moon and 7 planets. See Project Web Site for more details.
Java software that predicts transits of the International Space Station across the moon and sun, and close encounters with Mercury thru Saturn.
Model of the Solar System
The Solar Model is real time modeling of solar system. It allows user to navigate in space, to control time counting (speed-up time flow) and estimate movement of space bodies, bind camera to space objects (for example, from Moon on Earth in real time).
C API to control NexStar compatible telescopes
This library implements the serial commands supported by the Celestron NexStar hand control (HC) and SkyWatcher/Orion SynScan HC. This applies to the Celestron: NexStar GPS, NexStar GPS-SA, NexStar iSeries, NexStar SE Series, NexStar GT, CPC, SLT, Advanced-VX, Advanced-GT, CGE, CGEM etc. SkyWatcher: EQ5, HEQ5, EQ6 (Pro), AZ-EQ5 GT, AZ-EQ6 GT, EQ8 etc. and the corresponding Orion mounts. Communication to the hand control is 9600 bits/sec, no parity and one stop bit via the RS-232 port on the base of the hand control. Communication can be established over TCP/IP if nexbridge is running on the computer connected to the telescope. To control network based telescopes nexbridge must be used on the remote site. https://sourceforge.net/projects/nexbridge/
A library containing Some Useful Fortran Routines
libSUFR contains Some Useful Fortran Routines that I wrote for my own use, but that may also be useful for others. At the moment, it also "SUFRs" from the fact that Fortran module files are compiler-dependent...
Parallel Spectral Deconvolution is a multithreaded ImageJ plugin for spectral image deblurring.
Software for planet observation and study
Allow you to visualize any planet aspect at any time. Include extended feature database and texture. Many function are oriented to the observation at the telescope and other to indoor research .
RFI detector and quality analysis for astronomical radio observations
The AOFlagger is a tool that can find and remove radio-frequency interference (RFI) in radio astronomical observations. The code has been highly optimized for speed and accuracy. It is used by default for the LOFAR radio telescope and thus is in productional stage. The software can run in a fully automated way, but a graphical interface is provided to analyse results and tweak the strategy. The preferred input file format is the Casa Measurement Set (MS) format. I believe that the AOFlagger is the best available flagger, both in terms of accuracy and speed. It has been succesfully used on several interferometric telescopes, including LOFAR, WSRT, VLA, GMRT, ATCA and MWA, and the single-dish telescopes Parkes and Arecibo 305m. Besides the flagger, the software consists of tools to efficiently visualize data in different ways, such as plotting time-frequency diagrams and power spectra. It provides the programs rficonsole, rfigui, aoqplot, aoquality and more.
OpenUniverse is a fun, fast and free space simulator. It currently focusses on the Solar System and lets you visit all of its planets, major moons and a vast collection of smaller bodies in realtime 3D (using OpenGL).
GBTIDL provides offline data reduction for spectral line data from the GBT, a single dish radio telescope. Although the GBTIDL code is open source, running it requires you to have your own IDL license and base package.
WSClean is a fast widefield interferometric imager
WSClean (w-stacking clean) is a fast generic widefield imager. It uses the w-stacking algorithm and can make use of the w-snapshot algorithm. As of Feb 2014, it is 2-12 times faster than CASA's w-projection, depending on the array configuration. It supports full-sky imaging and proper beam correction for homogeneous dipole arrays such as the MWA. WSClean allows Hogbom and Cotton-Schwab cleaning and has wideband, multiscale, compressed sensing and joined-polarization deconvolution modes. All operations are performed on the CPU.
PSRCHIVE is an application suite and development library for use in the storage and analysis of pulsar astronomical data. It includes an extensive range of algorithms and tools commonly used in a wide variety of experiments.
This is an interactive graphical 3D simulation of the orbital mechanics of the planetary motion in the solar system and galaxy. It specifically concentrates on the phenomenon related to the sun, moon and the earth.
