    For almost a decade we have been developing an open source control system for autonomous observatories called Remote Telescope System, 2nd version - RTS2. The system is currently used to operate about dozen observatories. Its modular design allows exactly this and enables even more. Currently it is used to control not only observatories but also CCD testing laboratories. We present the internal design of this open source observatory and laboratory control package, and discuss its overall structure. Design of the system modularity is explained in detail, and various approaches to software reuse are discussed, with a demonstration of how the best solution emerged. We also describe how the system is being used at a CCD testing laboratory, and detail the quick transition from previously unsupported hardware to fully automated operation.
