Paper Abstract

When CCD imaging arrays are used for astronomy the demands placed upon them are generally considerably different than those placed upon them in general TV applications. In both cases the parameters used to characterize a given array are generally the same but the target values for the parameters may vary significantly. The emphasis placed upon certain characteristics may also vary significantly depending on the particular application. Since, for some of the parameters at least, different methodologies provide different values it is important to understand how each value is obtained. It is the purpose of this paper to describe some of the methods used by one group at KPNO for determining the values of the primary parameters.
