Abstract
Space-borne astronomical observations are often limited by the detectors employed, instead of the telescope itself (mirror, pointing system, transfer optics, etc.). Electro-optical sensors are continually being developed, and it is important to apply detectors with improved characteristics as soon as possible. It is also important to consider what devices could be developed in the near future that would increase the efficiency of astronomical observations.
