Hi Michael--

In my option, 100 base T is the obvious way to go.

100 Base T is fast, good for a 100-meter cable run, and standard across
Wintel, Apple, and UNIX platforms. It makes the next logical step in CCD
development -- remote world-wide CCD operation via internet -- an easy
The guys at Apogee are thinking in terms of 100 base T, so it's going to
sooner or later.

The other side is software. We need a standard CCD operating language so
that a
command set shared by all CCD cameras would run them. The host computer
send a series of setup commands followed by a "Shoot Image" command. At
the end
of the integration time, the CCD camera would return a FITS-formatted

Perhaps it's too obvious to point out that future telescope mounts
should be 100
base T compatible too.
