Paper Abstract

The CCD Toolkit (1) is a software tool for testing CCD cameras which allows to measure important characteristics of a camera like readout noise, total gain, dark current, 'hot' pixels, useful area, etc. The application makes a statistical analysis of images saved in files with FITS format, commonly used in astronomy. A graphical interface is based on the ROOT package, which offers high functionality and flexibility. The program was developed in a way to ensure future compatibility with different operating systems: Windows and Linux. The CCD Toolkit was created for the "Pie of the Sky" project collaboration (2).
