Abstract / Description:For various instruments developed at the Max-Planck-Institute-Heidelberg there was a need for a highly flexible display and control tool. Many display tools (ximtool, DS9, skycat,..) are available for astronomy, but all this applications are monolitic and can't be easily enriched by plugins for interaction with the graphical display, and other functionality for remote access and control of the instrument and data pipepline. It was developed on top of Trolltechs Cross-Platform Rich Client Development Framework Qt, the modern middleware Internet Communications Engine (ICE) from ZeroC and the template based SOA developer framework for astronomical instrumentation (NICE - see Abstract Juergen Berwein). The display tool is used on the Calar Alto Observatory (Spain) as a guider, for an wide field imager and guider at the Wise Observatory (Israel) and for LBTs interferometer Linc-Nirvana (USA).
