Abstract: The Telescope Data Center at Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory is a unit supporting observations and data flow from the optical telescopes of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. We have recently begun implementing a new database using PostgreSQL that aims to more effectively link and organize all phases of telescope operations, from proposal to data reduction, and distribution of data to PIs. As our first step, we have completed a raw-data database for the Hectospec fiber spectrograph on the 6.5m MMT. This database is designed to fulfill four basic needs outlined below.
