The new method of imaging Stokes spectropolarimetry in real time on the basis of polarization-holographic element is offered. Polarization-holographic element with complicated profile of anisotropy for the real-time complete analysis of polarization state of light (all Stokes parameters) is developed. During diffraction the element decomposes light incoming on them onto orthogonal circular and linear basis. The simultaneous measurement of the intensities in all points of images in diffracted orders by means of CCD matrices and appropriate software allows to determine the spatial distribution of a polarization state in the images of extended objects, and also the dispertion if this distribution.
