Paper Abstract

An imaging photometer employing a Bell-Northern Research (BNR) CCD has been developed at UBC and used on the Canada-France-Hawaii telescope (CFHT) in both a direct and an intensified mode. The intensified system is photon noise limited and linear from a 15th magnitude stellar source to the night sky limit. Intensified skylight provides a "bias" illumination that improves the low light level performance of the CCD.
