While fully automated methods for detecting faint moving objects in astronomical images - such as Kuiper belt objects (KBOs) - are constantly improving, visual detection still has a role to play especially when the fixed background is cluttered with stars. Color intensity projections (CIPs) using hue cycling - which combines a sequence of greyscale images into a single color image - aids in the visual detection of moving objects by highlighting them using color in an intuitive way. To… 
Improved visualisation of brain arteriovenous malformations using color intensity projections with hue cycling
TLDR
H hue cycling is used to demonstrate the substantial improvements hue cycling brings to CIP images, allowing interpreters to interactively adjust the phase of the hue via standard contrast - brightness controls using lookup tables.
