In TAIGA (Tunka Advanced Instrument for cosmic ray physics and Gamma-ray Astronomy) detector we are commissioning the first Imaging Atmospheric Cherenkov Telescope (IACT). The telescope drive system comprises a motor controller and two stepper motors for axis control. For the pointing calibration of the telescope a CCD-camera is installed on the reflector dish of the telescope. The position of the CCD-camera allows us capturing both the Cherenkov camera and the observed source. In this report we describe the telescope positioning and the drive system software as well as the control of the CCD-camera data acquisition, archiving and processing system.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
