The history of astronomy is in large part dominated by the history of detector development. As detector technology progressed from the unaided eye to visual telescopes to photographic emulsions and to electro-optical systems, each improvement brought with it answers to old questions as well as a host of new questions and the discovery of new types of objects. In astronomy, as in particle physics, progress is closely tied to deeper images, higher resolution, larger statistical samples, and broader spectral response, as the observer effectively opens his eyes wider to the view offered by the universe.
