Abstract

The outstanding feature of the last triennium was most certainly the abrupt generalisation of the use of array detectors, particularly CCDs (charge coupled devices). The latter pervade all subdivisions of instrumental astronomy. The gains achieved by their high quantum efficiency, their stability, their capability of delivering immediately recordable signals which can be processed by appropriate computational means, have been the cause of spectacular progress regarding the photometric precision of weak signal measurements.
