CCDInspector 2.1 | 9.72 Mb
Dramatically Improve the Quality of your Images by Increasing Sharpness and Resolution. Now with new features and capabilities in verion 2.1. Collimate your telescope in-focus with your CCD camera! CCDInspector works with your camera acquisition software to allow real-time evaluation of images to determine collimation, camera tilt and focus. Make collimation adjustments with your CCD camera to an accuracy not available with eyepieces or manual collimation aids.

Batch analyze your images for sharpness and resolution.
Astrophotograpers, CCD and digital camera users often take many shorter images to later process and stack to simulate one long exposure. To produce the highest quality image, it is important to eliminate from the stack sub-frames that are of lower quality than the rest. With CCDInspector, you'll be able to quickly select the best frames of the batch by measuring the quality of each of the images.
Real-Time Monitoring of Focus, Guiding and Seeing
CCDInspector is designed to work seamlessly with CCDSoft and MaxIm DL and other CCD camera control programs to provide these functions, along with a number of other useful tools to estimate seeing, image quality, tracking, and guiding performance.
Analyze frame illumination by measuring flat frames or star-field images
Predict how well a telescope will work with a different size camera, including FWHM, vignetting, and star distortions
Limit settings for automatic image evaluation and flagging.
Includes CCDIS/P Plug-in (see below) for Effortless Image Registration in CCDStack
Collimate your telescope in-focus with your CCD camera
Generic support for all image capture software, including CCDSoft5, Maxim DL, AstroArt, MaxDSLR, etc., capable of writing FITS, TIFF, SBIG, or most native DSLR Raw file formats!
