Author and Affiliation:
Robinson, L. B.(Lick Observatory, Santa Cruz, CA, United States)
Stover, R. J.(Lick Observatory, Santa Cruz, CA, United States)
Abstract: An evolving system for CCD data acquisition is described. The electronics are subdivided into those attached to the dewar, a 'smart' controller near the dewar, and a computer connected by serial link to the smart controller. Software for the smart controller is in assembler code, while the data acquisition and on-line analysis software is written in 'C' and uses the UNIX operating system.
