ESP — Extended Surface Photometry
ESP (Extended Surface Photometry) is a package of application programs developed to allow you to determine the photometric properties of galaxies and other extended objects.
It has applications that: detect flatfielding faults, remove cosmic rays, median filter images, determine image statistics, determine local background values, perform galaxy profiling, fit 2-D Gaussian profiles to galaxies, generate pie slice cross-sections of galaxies and display profiling results.
