Photometrics has introduced the high-performance Aurora CCD imaging system,
which features high sensitivity, a large field of view and deep-cooled CCD
sensors. Tailored to the needs of professional astronomers, the Aurora can
take low-light measurements with the help of its back-illuminated 2048 x
2048-pixel CCD. A typical electronic read noise of 5 electrons rms allows
detection of very faint light sources. When used with a large-capacity 2-l
Dewar, the temperature hold time exceeds 18 h.
