Knowledge is power.

Sir Francis Bacon (1561 - 1626)

Smear

Smear is an undesirable artifact of CCDs that appears in the picture as a vertical streak above and below a very bright object in the scene. Smear is caused by parasitic light getting into the vertical transfer registers. It is greatly reduced by the microlens-type of CCD used in Hyper HAD and Power HAD sensors. Almost suppressed in FIT CCDs.
