Paper Abstract

This paper describes the structural design and the performance of a CCD camera system developed for use at the prime focus of the 105-cm Schmidt telescope at Kiso Observatory. In this system, the CCD chip is housed in a compact vacuum microchamber holding a Joule-Thomson cryogenic refrigerator, mounted on the plate holder adaptor located at the prime focus of the telescope. A computer controls the CCD driver electronics. Digital image data can be displayed on a CRT and can be saved on a magnetic tape.
