What software can be used by amateurs for a nova search image analysis?
An automated nova search camera can easily generate an enormous amount of data which can be very difficult to manage manually. The traditional blinking of images would be very time consuming for one operator. There is also a concern that events may be missed in their early stage, when there is a small brightness differential, when assessing dense starfields.
Is there a software program, available to amateurs, that is able to assess the differential between a reference image and a test image and present the operator with candidates that require greater scrutiny?
