Project Description

Lynkeos processes astronomical webcam images. By stacking the best images, the signal to noise ratio is increased, and details lost in the noise of individual images become visible in the resulting image. This software accepts, as input, QuickTime, AVI, and MPEG sequences, or still images, in any image format supported by its active plugins (TIFF, FITS) and Cocoa. It generates a 16-bit RGB TIFF or a monochrome FITS image as output, to be further processed with some all-purpose image processing application.

The European Southern Observatory algorithm was
added to the wavelet tool. Parallelization (for
multiproc/multicore) and vectorization (for
Altivec/SSE) were implemented on most of the image
processes. A LynkeosCore framework was created to
allow external processing plugin developement. A
RAW conversion preference pane was added. Many
bugs were fixed.
