Abstract

A fault-tolerant, six-feature, all-sky star-field identification algorithm has been integrated with a CCD-based imaging camera. This autonomous intelligent camera identifies in real time any star field without a priori knowledge and requires a reference catalog incorporating fewer than 1000 stars. Observatory tests on star fields with this intelligent camera are described.
