A CCD camera is described which has been designed for single-photon X-ray imaging in the 1-10 keV energy range. Preliminary results are presented from the front-side illuminated Fairchild CCD 211, which has been shown to image well at 3 keV. The problem of charge-spreading above 4 keV is discussed by analogy with a similar problem at infrared wave-lengths. The total system noise is discussed and compared with values obtained by other CCD users.
