Abstract (from CDS):

A first CCD 512 x 512 camera working in scan mode (declination field 14') was mounted in 1994 on the Bordeaux CCD meridian circle. After a testing period, this camera was installed on the Valinhos CCD meridian circle (near Sao Paulo, Brazil), as part of a collaboration between Bordeaux Observatory and the Instituto Astronomico e Geofisico of Sao Paulo. A second improved CCD 1024 x 1024 camera, with a declination field of 28', was installed on the Bordeaux instrument in June 1996. The mean internal precision of a single observation is about 0.04'' in both coordinates for 9≤V≤14. In the same magnitude range, magnitudes can also be obtained with an internal precision of about 0.05 mag. Both instruments can participate efficiently in extending the Hipparcos- Tycho frame, during the next decade. Among other duties, the Bordeaux CCD meridian circle is being used since January 1997 for completing the Meridien 2000 project. The characteristics of both instruments and some results obtained with them are presented in this paper.
