Welcome to the AzCam documentation site.

AzCam is a software image data acquisition system developed at the University of Arizona Imaging Technology Laboratory (ITL). These pages are for AzCam version 6.0 and higher.

AzCam is currently used for Astronomical Research Cameras, Inc. Gen3, Gen2, and Gen1 CCD controllers, the Magellan Guider controllers, and the Archon controllers from STA.

See AzCamTool for a description of the standard GUI used by most telescope observers.

See AzCamServer and AzCamConsole for detailed (and advanced) information about how AzCam functions, especially for command-line usage and programming.
