Paper Abstract

This paper presents some results of work carried out with the Cambridge, England, CCD System that demonstrate its abilities to work at the faintest levels yet achieved at a telescope. Future applications of this method are also discussed in relation to Next Generation Telescopes and larger CCDs. Recent results of our programme to extend our wavelength coverage into the near IR (1 - 5 microns) are also described.
