Damage to eyes and ccds

Forums General Discussion NASA Survey Damage to eyes and ccds

I must admit to telling them that I observe the Zenith quite often, both visually with the 24″ and also with the CCDs.

My understanding is that lasers can damage CCDs as well as eyes.  I just did some searches on the internet to double check on this and found some confirmation of this. http://www.laserist.org/camera-sensor-damage-thesis.htm is one example.
