Starblinker is a supernova search tool. It allows you to easily search for new stars in your astronomical photos. If you find a new star in your image, keep in mind that it could be a defect in your photo, like a hot pixel, or:
1) An already known or a new unknown asteroid;
2) An already known or a new unknown comet;
3) An already known or a new unknown galactic nova;
4) If it is superimposed to an external galaxy, an already known or a new unknown supernova;
Before reporting a potential new discovery, please make all necessary checks to be sure it is not an already known object or a defect in your image.
