Traditional imaging of grayscale object generally demands multiple bits detection, in this paper, ghost imaging for grayscale object based on binary detection is investigated, and our results demonstrate that binary ghost imaging is enough to reconstruct the grayscale objects. With only binary signals, a little difference between binary and ordinary ghost imaging can be found when reconstructing the object with lower grayscale value, however, for the grayscale object with higher value, binary ghost imaging almostly achieves the same results to ordinary ghost imaging. Under extreme cases, the image of a grayscale object can be obtained by using the binary detector according to the characteristics of ghost imaging.
