  Description     : astronomical image processing and photometry gtk+ 

 Gcx is an astronomical image processing and data reduction tool,
 with an easy to use graphical user interface. It provides a 
 complete set of data reduction functions for CCD photometry,
 with frame WCS fitting, automatic star identification, aperture 
 photometry of target and standard stars, single-frame ensemble 
 photometry solution finding, multi-frame color coefficient 
 fitting, extinction coefficient fitting, and all-sky photometry;
 as well as general-purpose astronomical image processing functions 
 (bias, dark, flat, frame alignment and stacking); It can function 
 as a FITS viewer.
 The program can control CCD cameras and telescopes, and implement 
 automatic observation scripting. Cameras are controlled through a 
 hardware-specific server, to which gcx connects through a TCP socket. 
 It generates FITS files with comprehensive header information.
