Astronomical Discoveries

More astronomical discoveries have been made with MaxIm DL than any other commercially-available software package. Some recent examples are described below.

Supernovae

Tim Puckett and his team have discovered 270 supernovae to date. Most of the discoveries were made using MaxIm DL software to scan the images, with the help of the included Supernova Search Tool. MaxIm DL is also used along with ACP to automate the search telescopes.
