Paper Abstract

The photometric quality of film recorded imagery from electrographic detectors such as those proposed for use on the STARLAB and SPACE SCHMIDT telescopes and on the NRL-803 experiment 2 requires that special attention be given to the information-extraction (digitization) and data reduction and analysis techniques. These will be discussed in detail and illustrated by example. An initial attempt at ex post facto image motion compensation, which may be required for cases of inadequate pointing stabilization, and results of recent experiments in post-development autoradiographic enhancement of weakly exposed electrographic images will be described.
