Streak Detection in Astronomical Images
Author: Michal Šustr
This thesis describes methods of detection of objects in optical telescope images that manifest themselves as streaks. The detection is done with a custom algorithm and the results are compared with the known state of the art. The data used for testing comes from various observatories with different modes of capture, and simulated data is used as well. As the current state of the art presumes certain qualities of the streaks, methods are compared on images where they should both perform well. To contrast the methods, they are also applied to images for which the state of the art is not designed for.
