AstroImageJ (AIJ) is a modified version of ImageJ. It adds customizations to the base code and a packaged set of astronomy specific plugins.
- Astro-Mode – when selected, this enables the additional functionality offered by AIJ.
- Data Processing – performs image calibration (bias, dark, flat, linearity correction), and to optionally perform FITs header updates, run Multi-Aperture, and/or Multi-plot after each image has been calibrated.
- Multi-Aperture – performs differential photometry on a series of (usually already calibrated) images.
- Multi-Plot – plots multiple curves on a single plot
- Open Data – opens s a previously saved measurements table (or any generic tab, comma, or space delimited file) from disk for plotting with Multi-Plot.
- Coordinate Converter – retrieves coordinates from SIMBAD and converts them to other standard astronomical coordinate systems.
- Single Apterture Photometry – single aperture photometry is performed by left-clicking the mouse at the desired location in an image.
AstroImageJ is a Java based program. From a memory perspective it’s got a reasonably large footprint. With a fits image loaded, memory usage is over 800MB. This might be a problem with a mini PC with 4GB of RAM or less, but the AK41 has an ample 8GB of memory.
AstroImageJ runs well on the AK41.
