The team at SSRO is completely dependent on advanced software to perform remote imaging in a practical way as well as to process the collected data.  We currently use the following programs for all our images:

Object Selection and Session Planning:

Data Collection:

Image Processing:

We also use a number of speciallized "plug-ins" developed by a variety of amateur astronomers and astro-imagers.  We believe the software listed above represents the current state of the art in astro-imaging control and processing techniques.
