CCD detectors for wide field optical astronomy
AbstractModern research trends in optical astronomy, like the "Pi of the Sky" experiment, focus on study of short optical transients. This approach requires completely different construction of the detectors. They must cover large areas of the sky, require high sensitivity and ability to operate automatically. This paper describes requirements and construction of such detectors for wide field astronomy.
