CCDStack provides you with many tools to process, assemble and view your astronomical images. CCDStack uses sophisticated statistical concepts and methods to optimize stacking processes. CCDStack’s intuitive interface is straight-forward with unique and insightful displays of images and data.

CCDStackt is compatible with both 32-bit and 64-bit version of Windows. Due to the structural design of 32-bit Windows, you are limited to around 1 GB of usable memory, regardless of the amount of installed windows. 64-bit Windows can take advantage of all the memory that is available to it, making processing much faster and more responsive. Your stack size is only limited by the amount of memory you have in your machine.

Once your images are loaded up in this stack, processing can be performed on your images as one group of data. This allows for new, advanced image processing techniques not before available in commercial software.

  • Dark, Flat and Bias frame calibration
