NAME
       NoiseChisel - detect signal in a	noisy image

SYNOPSIS
       astnoisechisel [OPTION...] ASTRdata

DESCRIPTION
       NoiseChisel  is	part of	GNU Astronomy Utilities	0.12.  NoiseChisel De-
       tects and segments signal that is deeply	burried	in noise. It employs a
       noise-based  detection  and  segmentation method	enabling it to be very
       resilient to the	rich diversity of shapes in astronomical targets.

       For more	information, please run	any of the following commands. In par-
       ticular	the  second  contains  a  very	comprehensive  explanation  of
       NoiseChisel's invocation: expected input(s), output(s), and a full  de-
       scription of all	the options.

       All options and their values:
	      $	astnoisechisel -P

       Inputs/Outputs and options:
	      $	info astnoisechisel

       Full section in manual/book:
	      $	info NoiseChisel

       Full Gnuastro manual/book:
	      $	info gnuastro

       If you couldn't find your answer	in the manual, you can get direct help
       from experienced	Gnuastro users and developers. For  more  information,
       please run:
