TAOS II Successfully observes Occultation by Pluto

schedule Aug 13, 2018
TAOS II successfully observed an occultation by Pluto on 14 August 2018. Images were collected at the 20 Hz cadence we will use for the TAOS II survey using a prototype camera with an e2v CMOS test device. This was our first attempt to test the TAOS II multiple sub-frame readout method with a test device with a similar architecture as our science device. A plot of our measured lightcurve is displayed below.
