Description:The CCD (Charge-Coupled Device) has revolutionized optical astronomy. CCD cameras can provide imaging that is ten times more sensitive than the fastest photographic film, producing a digitized image that is easily computer-enhanced using a standard PC. Intended to help CCD camera users get the best possible results from their equipment, this book includes contributions from a worldwide range of experts enhanced with many beautiful photographs, including some in full color. The book is essential reading for astronomers who are either using a CCD camera in their work, considering buying one, or simply want to know more about today’s available technology.
