Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Montage is a software toolkit used in astronomy to assemble astronomical images in Flexible Image Transport System format into composite images, called mosaics, that preserve the calibration and positional fidelity of the original input images. It won a NASA Space Act Award in 2006. The software is described in detail by Jacob et al. Montage was developed to support scientific research. It enables astronomers to create images of regions of the sky that are too large to be be produced by astronomical cameras. It also creates composite images of a region of the sky that has been measured with different wavelengths and with different instruments; the composite appears as if the area was measured with the same instrument on the same telescope.show more
