In order to develop the detector adapted to the space solar telescope, we have built a CCD camera system capable of working in the extra ultraviolet (EUV) band, which is composed of one phosphor screen, one intensified system using a photocathode/micro-channel plate(MCP)/ phosphor, one optical taper and one chip of front-illuminated (FI) CCD without screen windows. All of them were stuck one by one with optical glue. The working principle of the camera system is presented; moreover we have employed the mesh experiment to calibrate and test the CCD camera system in 15~24nm, the position resolution of about 19 μm is obtained at the wavelength of 17.1nm and 19.5nm.
