CCD camera for Solar Observations

The camera for Solar Observations has been designed in collaboration with HITEC 2000 that has manufactured also all mechanical and cryogenic parts. The electronic preamplifier to be interfaced directly to the CCD controller already in use at the telescope, has been designed and realized by HITEC 2000 according to the technological transfer program between our institute and the company described above.
The camera mounting the set-up grade CCD has been completed at the end of this year. Vacuum leakage tests has been started and first tests at the solar telescope are foreseen during the 2005. The replacement of the set-up grade CCD with the scientific grade will be done during the 2005.
