Abstract

A new generation CCD detector called low light level CCD (L3CCD) that performs like an intensified CCD without incorporating a micro channel plate (MCP) for light amplification was procured and tested. A series of short exposure images with millisecond integration time has been obtained. The L3CCD is cooled to about $-80^\circ$ C by Peltier cooling.
