Full description 'GCX' provides a complete set of data-redu'GCX' provides a complete set of data-reduction functions for CCD photometry, with frame WCS fitting, automatic target identification, aperture photometry of target and standard stars, single-frame ensemble photometry data reduction, multi-frame color coefficient fitting, extinction coefficient fitting, and all-sky photometry. 'gcx' also controls CCD cameras and telescopes and implements automatic observation scripting. It controls cameras through a hardware-specific server that it connects to through a TCP socket. It controls telescopes which use the LX200 protocol, and refines pointing by matching images to the GSC catalog position of stars. It also generates FITS files with comprehensive header information.les with comprehensive header information.
