The motivation behind the Wise Observatory fast photometry project is to use a non-frame-transfer CCD for fast photometry of astronomical objects.

system performance:
The system takes images and performs aperture photometry with cycle of (>3) seconds and integration times of (=cycle - 3 sec). On the Wise observatory 1m telescope 6 sec. exposure is needed to obtain S/N of about 20 for 15 mag star.
