Abstract: Charge Coupled Devices (CCD) are currently by far the most widely used type of detector in astronomy. At the ESO Very Large Telescope (VLT), on mount Paranal in Chile, about 40 technical CCD cameras will be in operation for auto-guiding, field viewing, and wavefront sensing, as well as more than ten scientific CCD cameras for instruments working at optical wavelengths. After a brief introduction to the VLT Control System, the VLT CCD Detectors Control Software is presented.
