Paper Abstract

A low light level CCD imaging system is described in which the polarization as well as the intensity for each pixel in the image is measured and displayed on a color display. Overall performance is good, and the availability of quick-reduced Stokes images makes CCD polarimagery attractive for astronomy. We show polarization images of two objects recently studied.
