The CCD is the camera chip and must be configured for your TASK.  This is a description of the data entry necessary for this particular part of a TASK definition: see >>How to create a new PROJECT<< and >>How to add a TASK to a PROEJCT<< for the first part of this task.

You can then pick

  • one of the available cameras (currently, the SBIG STF-3800M is the main camera);
  • the "binning" (how many pixels are to be gathered in a larger super-pixel to save space, decrease readout time, and lessen noise);
  • the "windowing" (whether only a portion of the final image is to be read out and stored.
