We present a generic algorithm for performing astronomical image registration and pointing refinement. The method is based on the matching of positions and fluxes of available point sources in image overlap regions. This information is used to compute a set of image offset corrections by globally minimizing a weighted sum of all matched point-source… CONTINUE READING
