The Mo’Astro Documentation

Mo’Astro is a MongoDB framework for observational astronomy pipelines. Mo’Astro provides tools for building collections of FITS image metadata, and provides a place for pipelines to persist metadata producs. Mo’Astro also provides facilities for batch processing images with the Astromatic tool suite, and for hosting a local 2MASS star catalog with spatial-search built-in.

Mo’Astro is built by Jonathan Sick for the ANDROIDS survey of M31. Please cite arXiv:1303.6290 if you make use of this project, or its derivatives, in your own research. I’d also love to hear from you.
