CoLiTec published article in Odessa Astronomical Publications

CoLiTec Team published new article “Virtual observatory and CoLiTec software: modules, features, methods” in «Odessa Astronomical Publications» journal, which is included in the science database of NASA – Astrophysics Data System (ADS).

We describe complex processing system created by the CoLiTec project. This system includes features, user-friendly tools for processing control, results reviewing, integration with online catalogs and a lot of different computational modules that are based on the developed methods. Some of them are described in the article.

The main directions of the CoLiTec software development are the Virtual Observatory, software for automated asteroids and comets detection and software for brightness equalization.

The CoLiTec software is widely used in a number of observatories in the CIS. It has been used in about 700 000 observations, during which 1560 asteroids, including 5 NEO, 21 Trojan asteroids of Jupiter, 1 Centaur and four comets were discovered.

The Štefánik Observatory is located in the very heart of Prague, in Petřín’s parks at the Hunger Wall which was built during the reign of Charles IV in the 14th century. The observatory was opened on June 24th, 1928. In the middle of the 70s, a full-scale reconstruction gave the building its current appearance and it was reopened for the public in 1976. Since 1979, the Štefánik observatory has been a part of the Observatory and Planetarium of Prague.

Pavol Dubovský, astronomer from Vihorlat Observatory and Astronomical Observatory on Kolonica Saddle, Slovakia, presented communication with the following title: «FrameSmooth software – new tool for the calibration of astronomical images». The team of authors is international (Slovakia-Ukraine). Ukraine was represented by Kharkiv National University of Radio Electronics (Sergii Khlamov, Artem Pohorelov, Olexandr Briukhovetskyi, Vladimir Vlasenko) and Uzhgorod National University (Vadym Savanevych).
