A number of different CCDs are available for use with TAURUS--2. Some of the CCDs are coated to give sensitivity in the blue. Table 4 summarises the formats and pixel sizes of the various chips, and whether or not they are blue coated. Note that the formats quoted are for the image area only, not including overscan. The properties of these CCDs are described in more detail in La Palma Technical Note 79.
