Debian Astro Data reduction packages

Data reduction pipelines for astronomy

The term data reduction in astronomy means the data processing from the raw exposures up to scientific usable data. This includes the basic CCD processing, the astrometric and photometric calibrations, the reprocessing, error estimation and other steps.

This metapackage will install astronomy data reduction pipelines that can be used universally, but also those for specific telescopes.
