DESCRIPTION
       SExtractor  is a	program	that builds a catalogue	of objects from	an as-
       tronomical image. Although it is	particularly oriented  towards	reduc-
       tion of large scale galaxy-survey data, it performs rather well on mod-
       erately crowded star fields.
       See http://terapix.iap.fr/soft/sextractor for more details.
