DECAM Technical Documents

The information contained in this archive are copies of the documentation data base that resides off-site.

The principal purpose of this local archive is to provide information valuable to CTIO personel for the maintenance and testing of the DECAM instrument detector controller system - MONSOON.

All documents carry their original Doc DB number and version so that they may be traced back to the original source.

Every effort is made to maintain the local copies up to date with the latest revisions however, I am not infallible (you may have guessed that). If you find a discrepancy between the documentation and reality please contact Peter Moore (pmoore_at_noao_dot_edu) so that a correction or update can be made.
