The SAAO CCD camera is available for direct imaging on the 1.0-m and 1.9-m telescopes. Two SITe back-illuminated detectors are available: either a 1024x1024 pixel CCD (designated STE4) or a 512x512 pixel chip (STE3). When mounted on the 1.9-m, the camera is controlled by a DOS PC. On the 1.0-m, the control software is Linux-based. The detector is contained within a cryostat mounted at the Cassegrain focus, together with a remotely-operated filter box and an autoguider.
