AstroBuffer is a CCD astrophotography image manipulation application. It can open FITS and SBIG (st9) files. Contrast is adjustable to view different backgrounds and ranges of an image. It can scale, shift, rotate, and zoom in and out. Images can be aligned based on two star alignment, and can be summed, subtracted, averaged, and divided. RGB color images can be created from three images. Images can be saved as FITS or as any format that QT supports.
