CCD camera for the 91 cm telescope

The camera for the 91 cm is a result of a collaboration between the COLD group and a local small company (HITEC 2000) in a context of a technological transfer program started few years ago.
The camera prototype has been already manufactured and tested for vacuum leakage. During this year some tests with CCD under operating conditions have been done. Final tests and characterization in laboratory will be done during the first half of the 2005 and integration and first tests at the telescope are foreseen at the end of that year.
