Camera

Page history last edited by Joshua Pepper 12 years, 6 months ago

 

We are using an Apogee Alta U16 thermoelectrically cooled CCD camera with 4096 x 4096 Pixels.  It has a gain of 1.3 electrons/ADU, and a read noise of 8.7 electrons.  The full well depth is 85,000 electrons.

 

The camera currently uses a thermoelectric cooler (TEC).  After the commissioning phase of the project, the camera will be sent back to Apogee for the installation of a more advanced, 3-stage cooler to better maintain temperature control.

 

The camera is attached to the Lens with an adapter manufactered at Vanderbilt.  You can get more information about the adapter here.
