Abstract
Electrography has been used for astronomical observations over a period of about 15 years. The method is becoming' increasingly accepted by astronomers due to the possibility of new observational insights, the comparative, ease of opera tion, of the new detectors as developed by Kron McGee, and the improvements in reduction techniques. We choose an electrographic detector detector mainly on the basis of useful field, size for astronomical imagery. Our choice, the Kron detector, still has the largest available field.
