Kind of OT, but I was once brought a camera (pre-CCD days; magnetic
deflection pickup tubes) that was horribly out of registration.  It checked
out on the charts just fine, and I asked, "Where were you shooting with
"Oh, the new lab that has a huge superconducting magnet!"
I can't quote my exact reply...
Don't forget, the signal from a CCD is tiny, and there's a pre-amp in the
same module with lots of gain.  Shielding (Brits: we mean "screening") can
do only so much...
