In vacuum UV band, especially in the domain around 100nm wavelength, MCP dominates the detector realm, such as the FUSE telescope (the Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer), the working band of which is 90.5-119.5nm. In this paper, it is introduced our work of an attempt to build a CCD system with e2v’s enhanced no-coating device as the detector to test two vacuum UV band spectrographs, of which one works at 102-170nm band and another at 160-320nm. And the working band testing result of the CCD system is showed and the potential possibility to use CCD to detect far UV image is discussed.
