Abstract
We present a new automated photometric pipeline optimized for time-series photometry that includes a real-time data streaming service. An observer using this resource can automatically stream photometric data over the Internet. Other observers can then monitor the data stream in real time and make an informed decision whether to perform complementary observations of a transient event in progress. Our pipeline uses a modular design so that it can be easily implemented or customized as a real-time robotic telescope pipeline on any observatory. The pipeline is controlled through the user friendly SAOImage DS9 package.
