Implementation Act of CoLiTec software on observatory Odessa-Mayaki (583)

CoLiTec software was implemented on Odessa astronomical observatory – Odessa-Mayaki (Mayaki, Odessa region, Ukraine, MPC code – 583). CoLiTec software allows automation data processing of the asteroids survey, that perfrormed by ОАО on 0,8 m telescope OMT-800 with camera FLI ML9000 3056х3056.

Implementation Act of CoLiTec software on observatory ISON NM (H15)

Since November 27, 2010 СoLiTec (СLT) has been successfully used by Russian remotely ISON-NM observatory (Mayhill, New Mexico, USA) within its project dedicated to the observation and cataloging of space debris ISON (International Scientific Optical Network), managed by Igor Molotov. More than 1000 asteroids have been discovered in this observatory using the present software (dedication to the 50th anniversary of the first human’s flight in space April 12, 2011)

December 10, 2010 — Leonid Elenin (Russian astronomer, scientific associate of Keldysh Institute of applied mathematics, ISON-NM leading asteroids’ observer) discovered the comet C/2010 X1 (Elenin) using СoLiTec. That was the first discovery made by a Russian astronomer for the last 20 years. The Comet Elenin is moving in ecliptic plane and in October 2011 will be so close to the Earth that it will be for some time visible to the naked eye. As a result the Comet Elenin was widely discussed in the international media.

During sky survey in the night of 27 August 28 (UTC) ISON-NM observer Leonid Elenin with help of CoLiTec program has discovered a near Earth object received a provisional designation 2011 QY37. You could see electronic circular of MPC dedicated to this event. This is first NEO discovered with help of our program and the second NEO discovered by ISON-NM observatory.

Implementation Act of CoLiTec software on Andrushivka Astronomical Observatory (А50)

The first CoLiTec project carried on by the group yielded the first (on the territory of CIS) automatic discovery of an asteroid (May 2010), done by observers from Andrushivka Astronomical Observatory (Kiev, founder and manager Yurii Ivashchenko). 113 asteroids have been discovered despite the bad astronomic weather within this observatory using the present software. Observers stated that using the software, they had neither irritability nor insomnia after the work. The software is under continual refinement.
