Paper Abstract

We recall the geometric and photometric properties of this electronographic camera and its use since it has been put into operation in Hawaii (1982). A program of deep sounding of the Universe was started in 19 85 ; deep plates, in U, B, V colors, were taken in the direction of the North galactic Pole. We show the preliminary results of this study. With a single plate, one measures faint objects up to the magnitude B = 25,7. The color-magnitude diagram of these objects is established : the fainter they are, the bluer they appear ; this gives information on the state of the galaxies in the Past.
