Paper Abstract

The object of this paper is to show the conversion of a commercially made television camera to an intensified acquisition device used in astronomy. It will illustrate how the conversion took place and where and how the camera is used for field acquisition on telescopes at Kitt Peak National Observatory. Five such television cameras have been constructed and are being used with nine instruments on five different telescopes. The success of this approach versus another acquisition television camera will be discussed briefly.
