Two spectrograph control displays for the W. M. Keck Telescope
We analyze the look and feel of each display and discuss its software design. Developed using the Motif Toolkit, each display runs on an X windows work station. In the area of look and feel, we discuss the pros and cons of graphically depicting the instrument light path. In the area of software design, we discuss Motif and Xlib programming techniques.

We also thank Dean Tucker for developing the high resolution echelle spectrograph motor control software. Finally, we thank Julie Barreto for proofreading early drafts of the document. The W.M. Keck Observatory is operated as a scientific partnership between the California Institute of Technology and the University of California. The observatory was made possible by the generous financial support of the W.M. Keck Foundation.
