Software Tools for Photographic Observations

There are some software tools available to assist in the preparation and processing of photographic observations.

You can use the QRICHT package to calculate the optimal field of view for multi-station observations.

AstroRecord will assist you in measuring the meteors on the photo’s.

Note, Both programs are for older os’s and may not work on more modern systems. AstroRecord is no longer supported and relies on older versions of the appropriate star catalogues which may not be readily available. It also only works on 32 bit machines.

The video based software suite by SonotaCo can be used to import still images and perform various astrometric calculations on multi station observations.
