CCD SKYCAT monitors

A real-time display is provided for each of the CCDs. The pair of SKYCAT windows are updated during CCD readout for each CCD, and allow the user to monitor the data quality, visually check focus, look for gross contamination of the data, check for saturation etc.

The displays are automatical cobnected to the CCD system and will update on readout. however, if addition,la frames are loaded viw the File menu, the window in question must be reconnected to the CCD system via the Data-Servers menu item.
