The Moving Object Search (MOS)
The Moving Object Search utility lets you build sets of three images and then
automatically search for potential asteroids.
In the shot above, the program has located one potential target in
"Group:A4674_CLEAR_0020" (which was the name of the file for the first image in
the group. As you highlight the target in the upper list, the lower list shows information
about the target for each of the three images. As you select one of the images in that
lower list, the image is loaded and the target's position is displayed.
Settings on the Select/Extract page allow you to control the "thoroughness"
of the search by controlling the faintest magnitude and signal-to-noise ratio of the
target. The program also generates an MPC report for each position of each target for
which an automatic astrometric solution of the image can be found.
