Paper Abstract

The rapid and intensive development of the field of electro-optics over the last decade has resulted in the production of a wide range of sensitive, photoelectronic imaging devices for applications in astronomical research. It is five years since Livingston) reviewed the applications of image intensifiers to astronomy but since that time existing devices have been further developed and new devices have been introduced. A wide range of devices is currently in use-this review will describe those devices which have found a wide measure of acceptance amongst observational astronomers and will mention some recently developed devices which show considerable potential.
