Abstract
Television, as a scientific recording device, is less well known than its entertainment cousins. However, the continuously improving state of the art in electronic imaging sensors has vastly increased sensitivity, resolution, and other characteristics. Furthermore, improvements in electronic data recording and data transmission have enhanced television's greatest boon to space investigation: its capability of realtime or quasi realtime data transmission. This paper summarizes the results of a study to determine if an elec-tronic imaging system could compete with film as the data gathering technique for the NASA/California Institute of Technology's Photoheliograph program.
