  CCD Video Camera: Astronomy: CCD Video Camera - JACK NEWTON

  CCD Video Camera


If you see an astounding color CCD image, chances are it was taken by Jack Newton. From his home observatory in British Columbia, Canada, Newton pioneered color CCD techniques.

"The results I got with the first CCD cameras in 1990 blew me ' away," says Newton. "I couldn't believe what I was able to record. Now with the latest cameras, it's possible to routinely take images that duplicate the best photos taken with the 200 inch Hale Telescope." Indeed, backyard telescopes can image objects never seen before from Earth. "With a 16 inch telescope, anyone can discover five or six new asteroids a night, every night." Newton predicts film will be all but gone in 10 to 20 years. "CCDs will replace film just as CD replaced vinyl records. The nest years are going to be exciting times for amateurs."
