Abstract
Telescope, dome and camera controls can be seen as independent systems managed by an ad hoc software. We have used both hardware intelligence and a distributed PC based software to produce a system performing interactive and automatic observations. An integrated and automated data reduction pipeline allows most almost real-time image processing and WEB searchable archiving.
