MPO Software (Version 10)
Important Note about Buying MPO Software
The MPO web site is migrating to a new hosting service. The first step was to change
the URL for purchasing MPO software and using PayPal to handle credit card transactions. It
is not required that you have a PayPal account to purchase software. You can
use your credit card as before, with more cards being accepted than before.
All personal information (name/credit card, etc.) will be sent over a
secure connection once you start to process the order on the new site.
Thank you for your patience!

The latest version supports a binary version of
the AAVSO APASS catalog but the update files do not include the catalog because of its
size. The catalog as it now stands, about 4 M stars, will be made available shortly.
Automated Imaging and Precision Data Reduction/Analysis
Imagine getting hundreds of images overnight while you sleep. Imagine reducing
them in only a few minutes to find the rotation period of an asteroid or to reduce
variable star observations to standard magnitudes. You don't have to imagine. You can do
it with ease with MPO Connections and MPO Canopus.
"The software is an absolute miracle of integration and simplification of a
staggering number of variables, processes, mathematics and hardware. I still can't
believe it when I run your software through its paces; its just dazzling!"
Shape and Spin Axis Modeling for Asteroids
Based on the algorithms and code of Mikko Kaasalainen and Josef Durech, this advanced
tool is for upper level researchers looking to convert lightcurve data into 3-D models.
Data can be imported from the UAPC/SAPC catalogs and MPO Canopus. The core libraries (in C
and Borland Delphi) are available at no charge under a open source license.
