Astrometrica

Astrometrica is an interactive software tool for scientific grade astrometric data reduction of CCD images.

The current version for the Windows 32-bit operating system family is the successor of a DOS based software that was used for astrometric data reduction of photographic films (1990), and later CCDs (1993).

Written by Herbert Raab of Austria and deployed by Patrick Miller around the world in the Asteroid Search Campaigns of The International Astronomical Search Collaboration (IASC).

Astrometrica is particularly effective at spotting, tracking and reporting moving objects in our solar system such as comets and asteroids.
