    RE: Identifying stars in an imageYes, thanks all.  The site is astrometry.net.  I have an account and password.  If anyone asks me offline they can have it and try the service.  It is amazing.

    Subject: Identifying stars in an image
    
    About a year or two ago there was some discussion of a google service that
    identifies stars in a random image of the sky without having to know the
    angle, rotation, mirror image, zoom, whatever of the photo.  You can take a
    picture that is only 30 arc seconds wide and the service found it!  It was
    amazingly good considering the algorithmic issues.  The service is not
    public and you have to request access.  I have access but I can't for the
    life of me remember what it is called.  Once I get a hint I'll be able to
    find the old emails but I have about 40,000 emails.
    
    So:
    1) Does anyone remember the name of this service?
    2) If not the name can you point me to a date when I posted to seesat-l
    about this (I think it was about 2 years ago)?
    3) Once I find the service again, does anyone want my account and password
    so you can do your own searches?  Or alternatively the contact person?
    
    I searched through seesat-l archives of my postings.  I searched through my
    emails.  I googled it.  I can't find it.
