Guidercopy is a program which displays a near-simultaneous copy of the guider's image display and image control windows. The guidercopy image display may be manipulated using the image control window, but control of action guiding functions remains exclusively with the original guider implementation. Reticles, marks, and compass are displayed on the guidercopy image but can only be manipulated from the original implementation.

The program is started by logging into the appropriate guider host (see table below) and typing "xvideo -g -q".
