Paper Abstract

This paper gives details of the Cambridge CCD system hardware and of its performance at the telescope. A new technique has been developed (and called the Drift Scan technique) that eliminates most of the problems associated with flat field calibration and permits operation under photon shot-noise limited conditions. Some examples of recent astronomical results are given.
