The PIXY System is an automated astronomical image examination system developed by Seiichi Yoshida, used in the cource of new object survey of the MISAO Project. It automatically detects all stars from an image, collates them with star data recorded in catalogs, and finds out new objects or variable stars. It also prints out all astrometric and photometric data of all detected stars, so it is also useful for astrometry of minor planets or photometry of variable stars.
It is implemented using Java language. It runs both on a Windows PC and a UNIX workstation
