Paper Abstract

We are reporting initial results of near infrared photoelectric area scanning with control, detection, and on-line-processing employing digital techniques. The primary objective of this instrument is to measure separations and color differences of stellar binary systems in an objective and precise manner. We exploit the extraordinary linearity of the PM tube and develop a photon limited system.
