Paper Abstract

Astronomers have been the leading exploiters of CCDs, other solid state devices as well as sensitive photographic emulsions for optical imaging. Techniques associated with the use of these devices for observational measurements and the processing of data for applications is described. Practical aspects of the use of CCDs and of large digital data sets encountered in astronomy are likely to be met in other scientific applications. The experience in astronomy is therefore a source of solutions for the laboratory scientist.
