Unofficial Answer: What the I.T. doesn't know won't hurt us:). Except if you have to install software. The audit software would pick that up.


And on the offchance that the software will run on Solaris and that it is completely automated I can borrow a lot of cpu cycles at work :-)

There must be some software that can automatically do the blinking? It needs to align the images, match the brightness & contrast then flag anything thats different over a certain threshold. A tedious manual process.

Cool!

There must be - but I wouldn't have a notion of where to look. I think that if it out there, its probably proprietary. Still, if anyone comes across such a beast, that would be super. Of course, if anyone one to write such a beast...

Cheers
Dave

Have you seen this guy's stuff Dave?

www.supernovae.be/supernova.htm

I don't know if it is available to download anywhere however or if he would be agreeable to share with the AOP?

Also, I think there might be some software tucked away somewhere from the team that ran JANet and StarLink which were the UK observatories network. The systems team was disbanded due to funding problems (a terrible decision in my mind) but the members still have pretty amazing software on a site whose name currently eludes me. I should have a reference at home. It might have stuff to do blinking -- certainly they wrote a lot of image processing software -- but I am not sure if it's what is required for this programme.

atb,

John

Hi Dave, I don't have the necessary equipment for 1 and 3 but I'd be happy to help if I can on 2 (Blinking) and 4 (coordinating data).

That is very interesting John. I've sent an email asking if there is anything he could offer. Its a very well thought out package and it looks very good.

I had a look for JANet and StarLink - I found a couple of good sites. But to be honest, it looks pretty complicated. I'm working through the SExtractor manual to see if it will do the trick. I got another link to ESO - they have a distributed CD with all kinds of software on. But again, I think its pretty complex professional type stuff.

Thanks for the info - its certainly opened up a few more paths.

John L - you're on the list!
