5 February 2003Real-time visual astronomy using image intensifiers and data modeling
This paper presents the use of an image intensifier as an astronomical eyepiece for real-time observation of deep sky objects. The optical frequency spectra of observational astronomical objects are reported and compared with the spectral response curve of a Generation 3 intensified optical system. Image intensifier performance on various classes of deep sky objects is also reported along with methods for performing real-time image enhancement.
