Abstract This article is devoted to the research of modern high-sensitivity CCD cameras for operation in the photodetector equipment of optical telescopes of the middle class (one-meter telescopes). In connection with the rapid development of the technological base of optoelectronic devices, it is possible to use in the professional astronomical equipment not only devices that are designed for a highly specialized work profile, made in single copies. As a result of the mass production of modern CCD cameras, both the substantial reduction in the cost of the products themselves and the considerable improvement in the parameters of such devices themselves, which can now be integrated into the light receiving equipment of large and medium-sized optical telescopes. The purpose of this work was to determine the prospects for the use of modern semiprofessional CCD cameras in observations on optical telescopes of the middle class. The article presents the results of investigations of the CCD camera for astronomical observations using the Apogee Aspen CG16M as an example. As such a telescope was used 1 m optical telescope Zeiss-1000 (SAO RAS). The main conclusions that follow from the study: semi-professional CCD cameras can be recommended for use in photometric observations of bright objects with short exposures (dozens of seconds). And also it is unequivocally possible to recommend the data of CCD cameras for work in the composition of spectral equipment on optical telescopes of the middle class.
