Analyze complex imagery and recreate visual representations of various celestial objects by taking and processing images of the night sky. The suite supports RAW files from Canon, Nikon, Kodak, Minolta, Olympus, Fujifilm or Sony devices. FITS, PC-Lynxx, or SBIG images are also compatible with it.
Cyanogen Imaging MaxIm DLTM includes an extensive suite of image acquisition, processing, and analysis tools. Starting with complete observatory integration, MaxIm DL takes you from gathering raw data through to the final high-quality result with the minimum of effort.
A typical imaging sequence will include hours of autoguided images with dither, automatic filter changes, and pier flipping – all the while slewing your dome and monitoring the weather. Every image is tagged with extensive data in its FITS header. When your weather sensor reports unsafe conditions MaxIm DL will automatically shut down your equipment, park the telescope, and safe the dome.
