CCD WHT Camera
Mr. Douglas Otoupal, (915) 426-3263, otoupal@astro.as.utexas.edu

Mr. Otoupal is the McDonald Operations staff member responsible for WHT. There is one guider head available for imaging CCDs, the "WHT" guider. It can be used with the TK4 CCD. The guider accepts the usual optical-band filters. The imaging system can also be used in a "high-speed" mode, meaning integration times as short as 20 seconds. The high-speed CCD imager can be operated in a remote guiding mode.
