We consider a point pattern matching problem occuring in astronautics: Given are pictures from a camera with unknown orientation, showing a section of the starry sky. We want to determine the orientation of the camera by matching the constellations in the pictures with a star catalogue. This problem occurs for satellite attitude determination with star field sensors. We present a new solution, which uses incremental Delaunay Triangulation.
