Automated search

CCD images are easy to process with computers because the camera yields digital image file. So there are many projects working to find out new objects semi-automatically from images. They are not only supernovae search at some large observatories or asteroids survey at Palomar, but some amateurs also obtaining good results. These projects imply that to detect moving or variable objects from images is already a practical skill.
