18 July 2014 LBT prime focus camera (LBC) control software upgrades
Author Affiliations +
The control software of the Large Binocular Telescope's (LBT) double prime focus cameras (LBC) has been in use for a decade: the software passed acceptance testing in April 2004 and is currently in routine use for science. LBC was the first light instrument of the telescope. Over the last decade of use, the control software has changed as operations with the telescope have evolved. The major updates to the LBC control software since 2004 are described, including details for the upgrade to a single control computer from the current five computer architecture.
