[10.14] Pipeline Processing of CONCAM2 Data

R. J. Nemiroff, W. E. Pereira, J. B. Rafert, D. Perez-Ramirez (Michigan Tech)

The growing global network of CONCAM fisheye sky monitors are now returning over one Gbyte/night to http://concam.net . Stars as faint as visual magnitude six are visible on CONCAM2 frames, making them similar to the night sky as seen by the unaided eye. The electronic, global, and redundant nature of the CONCAM images makes them a unique tool for investigating variability in the night sky. Two software pipeline efforts are taking place: the first produces continuous automated photometry for bright stars in the northern sky, while the second is geared toward identifying bright transients.
