New Camera available: DLR-MKIII

A new CCD camera has been made available as a facility instrument by the German Aerospace Center (DLR), Germany.

The DLR-MKIII camera is equipped with an e2v CCD231-84-NIMO-BI-DD sensor with 4k by 4k pixels of 15 micron. In conjunction with the Bonn-Shutter exposure times as low as 0.1s can be achieved with a homogeneity better than 1%. This facilitates the acquisition of bright sources and sky flats. Using the standard 100mm filters in the instrument adapter, the FoV is 21.5 x 21.5 arcmin.
