Hi all,

I changed my algo to make it faster (it is still slow :D).
I also added an additional criterion for when a starlike object should be
considered a detected satellite. Now the red box indicates the initial
contact. When it is re-found in the next frame, it gets a yellow box. When
it is refound in at least 25 consecutive frames it turns green as long as
it can be found.

I will now add more information of what I did in my blog[0] but this will
take me some time. For now I wanna extract the pixel coordinates from a few
good satellites and get the Ra/Dec coordinates from the pixel track the
satellite did.

In the meantime, I do not know how to make my code faster, but I already
put it in our repo as it is now. I will clean that up also. But if you have
an idea how to tweak it, it would be very much appreciated.

Best regards,
