Paper Abstract

A 1K*1K CCD camera is designed, implemented and tested for CSTAR telescope in Antarctica, including its mechanics, CCD controller, power and temperature controller unit. Mechanical and electronic design for low temperature environment is taken into consideration fully. The camera has reliable mechanics and stable electronics performance. The readout noise is as low as 3.99݁ି when the CCD readout speed is 100kpixs/s. We fully tested every part of the camera in a Cryogenic refrigerator (-86 degree centigrade) and proved that our camera has the ability to work in Antarctica for a long term. Finally, the camera was tested on the CSTAR telescopes to take observations and the imaging quality meets requirement.
