Image Processing Software; suggestions?

  1. Nov 3, 2008 #1
    Hi, i'm in an astrophysics lab course - and the CCD image processing software on the physics department computers are .. frustrating to say the least.
    I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for something i could download and run on my mac; preferably free.

    Thanks,

    The standard in professional astronomy is probably IRAF http://iraf.noao.edu/
    It's commandline based and meant for heavy duty image processing and analyis rather than just click and play- although the image view, SAO is very good.

    MIDAS is a similair system for the european ESO observatory -I don't know how tied to ESO isntruments this is.
