Automated image prossesing
As the number of Robotic Telescopes increase amongst amatures i would like to see The AAVSO having more information on how to setup
an pipeline for image processing / reduction / photometry ....
There is not much information on how for ex the AAVSO robotic network works behinde the scene.
Ive seen some (very little info) in the forum on this subject about Iraf doing some of the work but else we are let out in the dark.
I have looked into just IRAF and Sextractor using my Mac and after a great deal of agony over installationproblems i finally got them running.
IRAF is a fantastic tool .. and when you learn to type again :) (command line ) it is real fun.
When you do Robotic Telescope mini surveys using for ex CCD Commander a night you get a heavy load of data and i think that its just a matter of time before we will se more observers go into the Robotic field so it would be nice if AAVSO would take the step to be the "leaders" of info even in this exiting
So let us in on the scripting secrets:)
