Shiny is a Linux/KDE/Qt - based program for controlling various CCDs from SBIG. In addition to basic CCD operations, Shiny includes a feature specifically for looking at spectral images and creating quick wavelength vs. intensity plots. This software was developed for an astronomy research group at St. Cloud State University that wanted to move their image acquisition stage away from Windows and onto Linux where the rest of their work was done.
