The OCam camera – A camera that outpaces twinkling stars

OCam is the world’s fastest high precision faint light camera. Developed in Europe, the camera is highly sensitive and able to take 1500 images per second. OCam has been specially designed and built by a team of French engineers from LAM, LAOG and the OHP and uses the CCD220 detector developed by e2v technologies. The technology developed with OCam has been transferred to ESO for use with the second generation instruments of ESO’s Very Large Telescope.
