Scope of this manual

This is a thorough rewrite of Phil Rudds ``Observers Guide to the JKT CCD Camera''.

This manual describes how to use the JKT and the JAG CCD camera with the Alpha-based Telescope Control System (TCS) and the Sparc-based Instrument Control (ICS) system and Data Acquisition System (DAS). The manual is aimed at visiting astronomers.

Sections 3-7 provide the reader with an extensive observing recipe, addressing all items necessary to operate the JKT and the JAG concisely.

This manual only lists the commonly used user commands of the DAS, ICS, and TCS systems. For an extensive command reference of each subsystem, please read the corresponding manuals (see below).
