TTPeeko

TTPeeko is the display tool that shows the Tip/Tilt (TT) camera image.

TTPeeko is a python program that runs on shade and is started at the command line by typing ttpeeko. A display window (Figure 1) will start and commands may be typed at the python prompt to modify the display in various ways.
