This thesis developed a calibration and imaging strategy for 300MHz MWA observations. Due to highly sensitive grating sidelobes MWA observations in this high frequency regime until now have been largely unprocessed. This thesis uses a model of the sky at 300MHz with a model the MWA beam at 300MHz to calibrate MWA observations. Deep images of calibrated observations were created by subtracting out the grating sidelobes. These are the first deep MWA images at 300MHz.

Camera calibration using one-dimensional information and its applications in both controlled and uncontrolled environmentsPeng, En; Li, Ling (2009)Camera model and its calibration are required in many applications for coordinate conversions between the two-dimensional image and the real three-dimensional world. Self-calibration method is usually chosen for camera ...
HEIDI: An Automated Process for the Identification and Extraction of Photometric Light Curves from Astronomical ImagesTodd, M.; Pizarro, H.; Tanga, P.; Coward, D.; Zadnik, Marjan (2014)The production of photometric light curves from astronomical images is a very time-consuming task. Larger data sets improve the resolution of the light curve, however, the time requirement scales with data volume. The ...

(2019)Context. New generation low-frequency telescopes are exploring a new parameter space in terms of depth and resolution. The data taken with these interferometers, for example with the LOw Frequency ARray (LOFAR), are often ...
