Currently, I am working to create HFITSIO, a HALCON extension package that allows to use astronomical FITS data files within HALCON,by wrapping the CFITSIO library. If you are using HALCON for astronomical image processing, or are interested in doing so, please contact me! I'd be happy to hear from you.

The HFITSIO project is part of my long-term goal of merging my professional experience in software development and image processing with my interest in astronomy. I am currently enroled in the JCU Master of Astronomy Program, and as I learn more about the image processing techniques used in astronomy, I will try to evaluate the suitability of HALCON for astronomical applications.
