We discuss a newly operational CCD imaging system optimized for the near infrared. The CCD is a front-side illuminated, three-phase, 385 x 578 GEC chip. The system is run by an LSI-11/23 computer with a FORTH language operating system. Hardware control signals are sent via a CAMAC interface. The important parameters characterizing the CCD are discussed. Finally, we describe some recent broadband observations of the interacting galaxies Markarian 171 made with the Mt. Lemmon Observatory 1.5 meter telescope.
