Converts ADV video frames into FITS files
This is a specialised utility that works with the astronomical digital video (ADV) standard (http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/adv-standard/) and converts individual video frames to FITS files. ADV files can be recorded by devices such as the Astronomical Digital Video System (ADVS) - http://www.astrodigitalvideo.com.au/

This application is used as bridge from ASCOM libraries to an external app using a TCP socket. You can find more information about this app using the Wiki project.
ATpy (Astronomical Tables in Python) is a Python module aimed at dealing with tables of astronomical data with a common API. To date, the following formats are supported: FITS, VO, and IPAC tables, and SQLite, MySQL, and PostgreSQL databases
A virtual planetarium for observers of the real sky.
Aciqra is a virtual planetarium and sky mapping program which tracks celestial bodies including planets, deep sky objects and stars to an accuracy of a fraction of a degree for thousands of years into both the future and the past. It includes the 2.5 million stars of the Tycho-2 catalog supplemented by data of 120,000 stars from the Hipparcos catalog, 13,000 deep space objects from the NGC and IC catalogs and a large number of asteroids and comets from the Minor Planet Center. The program is platform-independent and can be made to work on most modern computers that support OpenGL.

Editing tool for astronomical videos
AstroAviBrowser is a small tool for astronomy imaging capture/processing. With AstroAviBrowser, you may open a video file, select the good frames and save the new sequence in a new avi file. It also debayer your raw sequences.
AstroCTC - Linux astronomy software for Planetary and Lunar image c
AstroCTC (Astronomy CCD in Telescope Capture) is an application designed for video and image capture of the Planets and the Moon. A suitable astronomy or modified webcam will give the best results, however it will work with most webcams. The camera driver must be V4L2 compliant. Numerous video and image formats are available, however FITS image support is mostly basic and should only be used by those familiar with it. AstroCTC is intended for use with Linux only. While AstroCTC is primarily designed for use in astronomy, it can also serve as a general webcam program. The sample images shown were captured using a Meade LX90 8" and a Celestron NexImage camera.
Astrophotographing with Arduino and Linux
Astroduino is a project for making hardware and software for controlling your telescope and stand using Arduino as controller. The end goal for this project is to support support astrophotographing using the Linux operating system as a foundation.
