DESCRIPTION

       SExtractor  is  a  program  that builds a catalogue of objects from an astronomical image.
       Although it is particularly oriented towards reduction of large scale galaxy-survey  data,
       it performs rather well on moderately crowded star fields.
       See http://astromatic.net/software/sextractor for more details.
