Project PANOPTES


 

Software

All PANOPTES authored software is open source and available on github.

The PANOPTES Observatory Control System (POCS) has been written from the ground up using python.

The photometry algorithm which extracts accurate photometry from DSLR images which have a bayer filter array to encode color information was originally developed by Olivier Guyon and is described on his web page. The algorithm has been implemented in C, but will be wrapped in a data pipeline which will be written in python.
