The All Sky Automated Survey - Prototype CCD Camera

The Prototype Instrument of the All Sky Automated Survey is equipped with the MEADE Pictor 416 camera. It contains Kodak KAF-0400 CCD chip with 768x512 small pixels (9 um). Below are some data from the MEADE Technical Specification Sheet and corresponding measured values: Camera head contains also at least 2 loose washers freely flying inside the head, which fall from time to time onto the CCD surface. They bring dirt particles and may cause either CCD or shutter damage. I'm going to test what MEADE is going to say.
