Paper Abstract

POM, the `Pointing modeling module' of the VLT control system measures the pointing errors and derives a pointing model that is then applied within the tracking software of the telescope. The fit to the errors employs P.T. Wallace's TPOINT package, but POM is more that a wrapper for that software.
