Abstract: The Chandra X-ray Observatory provides unprecedented resolution over a large field of view with large collecting area. With these advancements, different and/or improved detection algorithms are a necessity for Chandra data analysis. We here present an overview of Celldetect, a source detection program for Chandra. Celldetect is descendent from Einstein and ROSAT data analysis programs (Harnden et al. 1984; DePonte & Primini 1993). It is part of the Chandra Interactive Analysis of Observations (CIAO) software package and is also used in automated processing of Chandra data.
