Abstract: UCO/Lick Observatory adopted SAOImage DS9 as the standard real-time and quick-look display for DEIMOS (commissioned Summer 2002) and subsequent instruments. Lick software staff made several modifications and extensions to DS9, taking advantage of its open architecture and the ease of adding Tcl/Tk code to the DS9 core at runtime. We worked in close collaboration with DS9 author Bill Joye on both core modifications and external ‘plug-ins’. Our poster describes features added to DS9 (in the core or externally), and a strategy for integrating DS9 with real-time image acquisition. The Lick software team invites other DS9 users to form a community and discuss code-sharing, APIs and other DS9 issues.
