Image processing in BRITE nano-satellite mission



The BRITE mission is a pioneering space project aimed at the long-term photometric monitoring of the brightest stars in the sky by means of a constellation of nano-satellites. Its main advantage is high photometric accuracy and time coverage inaccessible from the ground. The main point of this presentation are the details of procedures used to obtain high-precision photometry from a series of noisy CCD images acquired by the BRITE satellites in two modes of observing, stare and chopping.


Serdecznie zapraszam,
