Abstract: Carte du Ciel (from French, map of the sky) is a part of a 19th century extensive international astronomical project whose goal was to map the entire visible sky. The results of this vast effort were collected in the form of astrographic plates and their paper representatives that are called astrographic maps and are widely distributed among many observatories and astronomical institutes over the world. Our goal is to design methods and algorithms to automatically extract data from digitized Carte du Ciel astrographic maps. This paper examines the image processing and pattern recognition techniques that can be adopted for automatic extraction of astronomical data from stars’ triple expositions that can aid variable stars detection in Carte du Ciel maps.
