Paper Abstract

We review some of the recent CCD detector development projects now in progress at KPNO. An overview is given of our CCD controller systems, which are designed to accept a wide variety of CCD detectors with a minimum amount of modification. The performance characteristics of two currently operational CCD detector systems are summarized -- the cryogenic camera system and the prime-focus CCD system. Finally we give a progress report of the development work now under way in evaluating the performance of two Fairchild CCD-221 detectors.
