Paper Abstract

One of the tightest requirements to be respected for a telescope as the VST, hosted in a one of the best astronomical sites as the ESO Paranal Observatory, is an excellent axes control, to obtain the best overall performance of the telescope that, otherwise, can be dramatically affected. The software strategy to control the VST axes (azimuth, altitude, rotator) is here described.
