Abstract
The Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope (CFHT) is now operating a Wide Field Infrared Camera (WIRCam) with a 20.5' x 20.5' field of view. The camera uses a mosaic of four Rockwell HAWAII-2RG detectors enabling subsample readouts at a rate of 50Hz for guiding and fast parallel readout of 32 amplifiers per detector for science. This paper will discuss the software architecture and implementation used to optimize the scientific productivity of the instrument as well as our experience during the first semester of use.
