Astronomical imaging demands a great deal from a detector. Recently a number of systems have been developed which have increased the efficiency of telescope usage by more than a factor of ten. A number of the newer detectors are described with reference to the special characteristics required for astronomical work. It is expected that the trend toward the use of efficient detectors will increase as the readily available detectors continue to improve in performance and ease of operation.
