Abstract (from CDS):

A prototype CCD photometer has been designed and assembled in Tromso, and tested at the Nordic Optical Telescope with the XCOV 17 target PG 1336-018 as a test object. Our new instrument uses a windowed readout technique to create an arbitrary number of virtual channels in the CCD field, and a sampling rate that can be pushed down to 1 Hz, thereby overcoming the low duty cycle problem that makes standard CCD instruments unsuitable for WET type photometry. The system relies on a completely new software design, both on the hardware control level and the data processing level, providing a system with unprecedented flexibility and real time performance.
