CoLiTec software as well as Astrometrica software is implementing such functions:

  • Ability to quickly select the configuration profile;
  • Frames calibration;
  • Configuration and image transformation tools;
  • Supporting of local catalogs of the reference stars;
  • The list of supported local catalogs (XPM, USNO A2.0, USNO B1.0, UCAC3, UCAC4);
  • The list of supported online catalogs (USNO B1.0,UCAC4);
  • Supporting of online catalogs of the reference stars;
  • Recording of coordinates information (WCS) to the FITS-frame header;
  • Frames adding technique – Track & Stack;
  • Interactive mode for the objects measuring;
  • “Magnifier” tool;
  • Automatic searching of moving objects;
  • Visual inspection of automatically detected moving objects;
  • Issuance of astrometric measurements in MPC format;
  • Sending of measurements to MPC from the program interface;
  • Displaying of known and detected objects on the frame.

CoLiTec software, unlike Astrometrica software is implementing such functions/features/operations:

  • Astrometric reduction of CCD frames with wide fields of view (2 ° or more);
  • Supported local catalog Tycho2;
  • Supported online catalogs (NOMAD, SDSS v8);
  • The possibility of separate using of catalogs for astrometric and photometric reduction;
  • Automated search of moving faint objects (SNR ~ 2.5);
  • Automatic processing mode of data flow;
  • Saving the results of the frames processing (detected real objects, objects rejected by the operator and others);
  • -

  • Identification of the detected moving objects with online database MPCORB (MPC);
  • Identification of stationary objects with a database of variable stars (VSX);
  • Identification of stationary objects with a database of galaxies (HyperLeda);
  • Modular construction (the ability to connect the individual modules).

CoLiTec software does not implement such functions / features / operations:

  • Supported local catalogs (PPMXL и CMC-14);
  • Supported online catalogs (XPM, UCAC3 CMC-14, PPMXL);
  • Identification of the detected moving objects with a local database MPCORB.

CoLiTec software as well as Astrometrica software does not implement such functions:

  • Astrometric reduction of the “strokes”;
  • Open ource.
