Astronomical imaging: The theory of everything

  title={Astronomical imaging: The theory of everything},
  author={D. Hogg and D. Lang},
We are developing automated systems to provide homogeneous calibration meta‐data for heterogeneous imaging data, using the pixel content of the image alone where necessary. Standardized and complete calibration meta‐data permit generative modeling: A good model of the sky through wavelength and time—that is, a model of the positions, motions, spectra, and variability of all stellar sources, plus an intensity map of all cosmological sources—could synthesize or generate any astronomical image… Expand
