In 2017 Tican Observatory started the sky survey program with aim to discover potentially hazardous asteroids and provide a follow-up observations for large sky surveys. As they started producing significant amount of data, the idea was to use their imagery for supernova search. During the Visnjan School of Astronomy 2018, group of high school students and their mentors started developing a pipeline for transient object search. Pipeline consists of 2 main parts: backend and frontend. Backend part is performing image acquisition, calibration and processing. The frontend part is used for visualization and classification of detected objects and events. The next step is to expand the search on other transient objects and to start citizen science project for transient object detection and classification.
