Changes the readout rate to the faster (and higher noise) of the two allowed values.
Format: QUICK SPEED
Comments: This provides a quicker readout of the CCD, and hence less dead time between exposures, together with a slightly higher dynamic range, at the expense of somewhat higher readout noise. If you wish to run the CCD in this mode you must issue this command after every hard or soft reset of the CCD controller. This command is only available from the VHT vocabulary, if it appears not to work type VHT then try again. This instruction can also be issued over the network from the DMS terminal, to do this type >CCDn, where n is 1, 2, 3 or 4 and denotes the network address of the CCD in question; then type SPEEDY.
