Star Identification via Computer Vision Techniques

Starry Night


We discuss a method for identifying stars in a photograph. We first filter the image using region labeling and locally adaptive thresholding. We then compare the stars in the image to a star catalog. This project turned out to be overly-ambitious for a class project, and we never really got it working.
