Abstract:

The report covers the following topics Image orthicon 1 description of the modified UVR 300 image orthicon camera system and some preliminary results obtained with this instrument at Kirtland 2 discussion of initial results obtained at Dearborn Observatory using the Dearborn image orthicon camera and an Aerojet Delft Rayxar lens 105 mm focal length, f ratio 0.75 furnished by AFSWC 3 star identification on image orthicon photographs 4 Modified UVR 300 system-Rayxar 150 f0.75 lens limiting magnitude 5 comparison of sensitivity of an S-10 I.O. and RXP film 6 evaluation of image orthicon plate reduction accuracy, with both the Kirtland and the Dearborn instruments 7 low dispersion objective grating spectroscopy with an image orthicon camera system 8 applications of composite photography to image orthicon observations 9 a rocketborne solution to the problem of daytime observation of artificial earth satellites 10 a method for determining positions of objects observed with long focal length, narrow field instruments Investigations related to the airborne astrographic camera system 1 Off axis camera correlation 2 A restricted single aircraft solution 3 Astronomical refraction and rocket refraction in the airborne case 4 Determination of lens distortion as a means of reducing error in observations with a limited number of stars 5 identification of a problem area in AACS data reduction and a proposed solution 6 analyses of Airborne Astrographic Camera System observational results in terms of system accuracy.
