Paper Abstract

We present optimized performance of algorithms developed for detection of point like, visible light bursts in the sky. The algorithms based on analysis of series of consequtive images and detecting local differences between them were tested on simulated data obtained by inserting images of stars of different magnitudes at random positions. We discuss the choice of parameters which results in the maximal detection efficiency and simultaneously keeps the number of false detections as low as possible.
