th The four ESO CCO Workshop, Optical Detectors for Astronomy, was once held in the course of September 13-16, 1999 at its traditional place, the headquarters of the eu Southern Observatory in Garching, Germany. We wish to take into accout this workshop as a "meeting of friends", who got here to Garching to go to ESO and to give their paintings, instead of a proper assembly. in line with our event with the 1996 ESO CCO workshop, we intentionally positioned emphasis on growing an atmosphere that inspired the individuals to stick jointly and informally alternate rules. those casual occasions started with a journey of the BWM car manufacturing unit and persevered with a reception at "SchloB Beletic", the convention dinner at a true SchloB of the Bavarian overseas institution (where the contributors loved basket, baseball, desk football, mountain climbing and finally dancing) and concluded with a journey of the Paulaner Brewery and dinner on the Seehaus within the Englisher Garten. The lunch "Biergarten", adjoining to the poster consultation quarter, was once an everyday assembly aspect. the end result used to be a superb mix of very good displays and posters, accrued in those complaints, and plenty of events for individuals to get in contact and to celebrate jointly, as witnessed by means of the choice of workshop images that we randomly positioned among papers. This e-book includes a detailed contribution.

We started the FIERA project with size and weight not being considered significant issues. After all, the VLT is a very big telescope and many instruments are quite large, so why bother miniaturizing one box of electronics? So we proceeded to make 6U electronics boards, placed them into a 12 slot custom backplane, added cooling fans, glycol plumbing, insulation and a very rugged mechanical housing (which serves as an excellent Faraday cage). For lowest noise, we use a set of linear power supplies with its own cooling, insulation and mechanical housing.
5m Spectroscopy behindNAOS AO svstem It is interesting to see which kinds of CCDs are planned for use in all of the systems that will be developed through the year 2002.

The purpose of the cryostat is to provide cooling "power", and ESO's custom designed cryostats come in three models: (a) bath cryostat - for Mission accomplished - ESO's optical detector systems come ofage 19 Nasmyth focus, (b) bath cryostat - for Cassegrain focus, and (c) continuous flow cryostat. The bath cryostats contain a tank of liquid nitrogen that has a unique flotation mechanism that keeps the nitrogen outlet pipe pointed up (away from the Earth) as the instrument rotates. 5 liter tank to be filled nearly completely full so that hold times of over 2 days are possible.
