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

  • Ability for quick selection of the configuration profile;
  • Frames calibration;
  • Configuration and image transformation tools;
  • Supporting of local catalogs of the reference stars;
  • List of supported local catalogs (USNO A2.0, USNO B1.0, UCAC3, UCAC4);
  • Supporting of online catalogs of the reference stars;
  • List of supported online catalogs (USNO B1.0, UCAC4, NOMAD, GAIA-DR2);
  • Recording of coordinates information (WCS) to the header of FITS-frame;
  • 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);
  • List of supported local catalogs (Tycho-2, XPM);
  • List of supported online catalogs (UCAC5, SDSS DR9, APASS DR9, Tycho-2);
  • The possibility of separate using of catalogs for astrometric and photometric reduction;
  • Astrometric reduction of the “strokes”;
  • Automated search of moving faint objects (SNR ~ 2.5);

  • 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:
