CCD camera

The StanCam detector is the oldest CCD at the NOT, a Tektronix's TK1024 1K pixel square device, and has a very poor quantum efficiency compared to other NOT detectors, especially in the blue. A report titled "StanCam Detector Options" has been written proposing several alternative camera systems including replacing the detector with a better device such as the old ALFOSC Loral CCD or an optimized E2V CCD, a commercial camera option or even a LuckyCam type instrument.
