(extra-solar planets in transit and occultation)

This camera assembly is optimized for the red band of the visible spectrum and based on a high-speed CCD detector (L3 EMCCD).  It features a very high signal sampling rate (~10-100 Hz), zero readout noise and no dead time between images. The camera is mounted onto a controlled rotary table and comprises a large filter wheel and a deployable folding mirror to switch between instruments. OMP was in charge of the opto-mechanical design, assembly and installation of the system onto the telescope.
