Paper Abstract

We describe the implementation of a panoramic photon-counting detector system of the Ranicon (resistive anode) type which is in operation at Mont Megantic Observatory. Particular emphasis is placed upon the modularity and flexibility of the system and the richness of its software environment. Spectroscopic applications now in course at Megantic are briefly described and some of the instrumental applications in preparation are mentioned.
