RFS: gcx - astronomical image processing and photometry


I'm looking for a sponsor for gcx, an astronomical gtk app. I'm also
the upstream author for this package, which has had about two dozen
public source releases in the last 2.5 years (see freshmeat page:
http://freshmeat.net/gcx for statistics).

The package files can be found at http://gcx.sf.net/debian

The package is lintian and linda-clean and builds with pbuilder for
woody, sarge and sid.

Package details follow:

 Description: astronomical image processing and photometry gtk+ application
  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.
  For automating data reduction of large numbers of frames, gcx
  implements recipe files. These files contain specific information
  about the objects measured in each field. Once a recipe file is
  created for a given field, any number of frames of that field
  can be reduced without user intervention.
  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.
  Telescopes and mounts using the LX200 protocol are
  supported. Gcx uses it's automatic field identification
  functions to refine telecope pointing accuracy.
  When invoked without arguments, the program runs in GUI
  mode. Most functions are also accessible through command line
  options, allowing integration in a custom reduction pipeline.
