RTS2—The Remote Telescope System

Figure 1

Example RTS2 environment. Two basic setups are present on the site—a telescope with a guiding CCD and a main CCD equipped with a filter wheel, and an all sky camera. There are two domes (one for telescope, second for all sky camera), three CCD detectors, executor and selector services controlling telescope setup and scriptor, a simplified executor service, controlling the all sky camera. Both observatories offers external access through XML-RPC protocol, provided by XMLRPCD. This is used by the Graphical User Interface and the Web server. XMLRPCD also provides a Web browser with direct access to some functions. Access to XML-RPC and Web functions can be protected with a password.
