Hello, I am using the SIFT detector to detect keypoints on an image. But, I am receiving a very big amount of them and I noticed that there are a lot of duplicates, where everything is the same, apart from the angle. Is this normal behaviour? I have attached an image showing some of them. Thanks in advance.

Hi, this is the behavior as described in the original SIFT paper Distinctive Image Features from Scale-Invariant Keypoints from David Lowe in section: 5 Orientation assignment on page 13.
