The camera for Solar Observations has been designed in collaboration with HITEC 2000 that
has manufactured also all mechanical and cryogenic parts. The electronic preamplifier to
be interfaced directly to the CCD controller already in use at the telescope, has been
designed and realized by HITEC 2000 according to the technological transfer program
between our institute and the company described above.
The camera mounting the set-up grade CCD has been completed at the end of this year.
Vacuum leakage tests has been started and first tests at the solar telescope are foreseen
during the 2005. The replacement of the set-up grade CCD with the scientific grade will be
done during the 2005.
