The idea is that once you have scanned the star / planet / moon that you wish to keep count of, you take a screenshot of it. At some later point, you then run EDABC, it then looks through a specified directory (i.e. the E.D. screenshot directory) looking for image files and it then tries to apply some Optical Character Recognition (OCR) on the images to determine what type of astronomical body was scanned. A count is kept of the various astonomical body types. The images can be copied or moved to another folder (or left alone).
Note: requires building from source code.
