Abstract
Improved sensitivity to light and uniformity of response has been obtained using various surface treatments of thinned CCDs. Procedures are described and some results are shown. The Lick Observatory data acquisition system is briefly described. A new thermoelectrically-cooled CCD camera for telescope guiding has been designed and built. The camera is described and preliminary results at the telescope are given.
