The Photon Counting Camera CP40
CP40 is a set of four Thomson CCDs fed through a fiber optics reducer and splitter, with a common stack of a 40 mm diameter VARO image tube (the entrance stage) coupled with a RTC microchannel plate intensifier. A hardware photon-centroiding processor giving an accuracy of 1/4 CCD pixel increases the number of pixels to 3072x2304 logical pixels of 13 µm. Performances and future developments are outlined.
