source extractor for astronomical images
Find sources, such as stars and galaxies, in astronomical images.
The input data files are in FITS file format, and are analyzed to
compute the locations of sources, with the ability to distinguish
between galaxies and stars using a neural-network technique.
SExtractor stands for ``Source Extractor'': a software for making
catalog of sources from astronomical images.
Multi-Extension FITS is now supported. Binary output catalogs are also MEFs.
ASCII output catalogs contain detections from all extensions merged together.
Use the "EXT_NUMBER" catalog parameter to identify the extension on which a
given source was detected. Check-images will also be writt
The present documentation of SExtractor2 is still very incomplete: this
is rather a ``proto-documentation''. Chapters are missing. The english
is so-so. At least I tried to remove any obsolete information from V1.0.
I will progressively upgrade the documentation during the coming months.
In the meanwhile, you may still retrieve some basic information from the
old documentation included in V1.0 arc

default.param: a .param file, containing all parameters known by SExtractor.
To prevent some parameters to figure in the output catalog,
just erase or comment their names (by adding a # at the
beginning of the line).
