Data acquisition

A new Linux-based user interface has been installed. The system includes the control command console, quick look and analysis facility, and a number of real-time process displays to monitor the CCD status and the photon counter.

Work is now in progress to implement a data pipeline reduction facility. This is especially important for the spectropolarimetry mode where the results of observation cannot be viewed in a simple way.
