I am doing some infrared imaging of fasteners on the skin of an aircraft. I am not too proficient with the image processing toolbox in MATLAB and was in need of a little help. My goal is to import the images into MATLAB and locate the true centers of each fastener (there could be multiple fasteners per image). My initial idea was to perform edge detection processes (with the edge() command) to locate the edges of the fasteners and then find the centroids of each circular (or elliptical depending on view factor) edge (possible with the regionprops() command). Any suggestions?

That sounds like you have the overall plan right. We can help you more if you provide us with your image (imageshack or some other free hosting website).
