CCDVIEW is a simple program developed for Unix / Xwindow systems for quick viewing images produced by SBIG CCD cameras. Features include: display SBIG CCD images either uncompressed or compressed ST-x and FITS formats (PixCel255, ST-5, ST-6, ST-7 and ST-8 were tested), batch mode, image manipulation, and three interactive modes: normal, listing and photometry.
NightView is a software package to control the CCD cameras from SBIG. It was developed on Monte Boo observatory as main control software of our camera.
SBIG STV control
The SBIG STV control software is designed to control the SBIG STV CCD camera and autoguider in Linux. The software supports hardware keypress emulation.
Shiny is a Linux/KDE/Qt - based program for controlling various CCDs from SBIG. In addition to basic CCD operations, Shiny includes a feature specifically for looking at spectral images and creating quick wavelength vs. intensity plots. This software was developed for an astronomy research group at St. Cloud State University
XmCCD uses the SBIG universal driver library for operating SBIG CCD cameras with Linux. A Motif user interface provides for selecting the operating temperature, the filter, and the exposure times for both tracking and main CCD's. The tracking CCD is read continuously during the main exposure and may be used for interactive guiding. Full auto-guiding and control of the Adaptive Optics (AO) device is coming soon. XmCCD creates FITS image files with comprehensive header information and displays the images using ds9.
