Next Generation Camera
The current camera configuration is passively cooled through conduction and natural convection. Approximately 15 watts are generated by the TE cooler, with a somewhat smaller amount coming from the electronics enclosure. For future camera applications this may not be acceptable. Estimates have already been made for a liquid cooled camera head (remotely exhausted heat) and also for separate, remote camera electronics box. Requests have also been made for a larger CCD, which can be accommodated.
