Abstract:

The results of preliminary tests of the device at the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory are given. It is shown that in the photography of stars with a diameter of the image of the order of 0.1 mm there is a gain in exposure by a factor of 70 as compared to HP-3 Ilford plates. Photometric estimates of photographs obtained from the screen of the video-control apparatus can be made with a precision of not less than 0.15 magnitude. Experimental photographs of spectra of faint stars were taken also. Author
