-** Taking a picture ​from the camera **+**Receiving images ​from the camera**
  
-Taking a snapshot ​from the camera ​requires working with the MCC program from the [[software|Software]] ​section and performing some sequence of actions described ​below.+To receive images ​from the camera ​you will need to run the MCC software referenced in the Required ​software section and perform a sequence of steps detailed ​below
 +Screenshots and paths in the instructions are shown for Windows 7. Tab titles may differ in Windows 8 and Windows 10.
  
-Screenshots and the described path in the instructions are presented for Windows 7. In Windows 8 and 10, the names of the tabs may differ.+**Connecting ​the Camera**
  
-==== Camera Connection ====+Connect the camera using a special male-male ribbon cable to the orbiter control computer (OCC). 
 +See here for ribbon cable assembly instructions.
  
-  ​Connect ​the camera with a special cable dad-dad to the BUD. +**Connecting ​the HF Transmitter**
-You can read about how to assemble a train [[wiring|Cable network]].+
  
-==== Connecting the RF transmitter ==== +Connect the HF transmitter to the Orbicraft Construction Set network. 
- +When the HF channel is operating on the construction set the LED of the HF transmitter ​will emit a light signal ​that will be detected by a sensor on the HF receiver.
-  * Connect the RF transmitter to the OrbiKraft kit network ​ +

-<note tip> +
-When the RF channel is working, ​the RF transmitter ​LED emits a light signal, and the sensor on the RF receiver detects it.\\  +
-\\  +
-Real HF channel on spacecraft does not use light signals, but operates on the basis of high-frequency radio communications. In the Orbicraft, pictures are transferred using simulators RF receiver ​and RF transmitter,​ and in fact, the picture is transmitted via Wi-Fi channel between the control center and the FTP server that is automatically deployed on a personal computer when the MCC startThis approach allows you to demonstrate some "​visibility"​ of processes. +

-The RF receiver can be connected to the user'computer using the USB adapter ​included in the kit. While working ​with the globe, RF receivers ​embedded in the globe can be used.+**//Actual HF channels in spacecraft use no visible light signals but rather rely on high-frequency radio communications. In the Orbicraft construction set images are transferred with simulated HF receiver and HF transmitter while the actual transfer takes place over a Wi-Fi channel between the OCC and an FTP server started automatically on the PC when the MCC software is launched (Ground Control.exe). This approach provides a visual cue to how processes work. 
 +The HF receiver can be connected to the userPC by means of a USB adapter ​packaged ​with the construction set. HF receivers ​integrated into the globe can be used when working with the globe.//**

-It is necessary to have an RF transmitter in the network ​of the designer ​to transmit the picture. It is not necessary ​to use the RF receiver ​to receive a snapshot, since the snapshot must be transmitted ​and appear in the MCC window ​without itIn the event that the transfer of a snapshot occurred when the RF receiver ​was present ​and the sensor of the RF transmitter flashed within the visibility range of its sensor, ​then a message will appear ​below the photo stating that the snapshot was transmitted via the RF channel.+**//An HF transmitter ​must be present ​in the construction set network ​for an image to be transferred. It is not mandatory ​to use the HF receiver ​for receiving images as the image will be transferred ​and should ​appear in the MCC window ​even with no receiver presentIf the image was transferred using the HF receiver and the HF transmitter ​LED flashed within the field of view of its sensor, a message will appear ​under the image stating that the image has been received over the HF link.//**
