The scientific community is always pushing the limits of the current technology one step beyond. More in particular, astronomers are pushing the detection limits and try to discover the most distant and faintest objects of the Universe. On the other hand, in several projects the astronomers are still applying old techniques for reducing and analysing the data. As a consequence, the observed data we are acquiring with modern facilities could be treated in a better way. In this context is where I am focusing my research. It consist in low surface brightness science. This means that I am stuying the characteristics and properties of low surface brightnes objects by developing new techniques to be able to detect and study them.
