Abstract
We present a number of new and revised measurements of the imaging properties of the buried-channel RCA CCD at cryogenic temperatures, based on our experience with this device over the past 18 months in both a laboratory setting and at the telescope. Included will be a discussion of the effect of some of these characteristics on the problems of astronomical imaging as well as a description of some of our ongoing efforts to both apply photometric corrections to such images and remove defects.
