Abstract

The advantages of the Monk-Gillieson dispersion system using a plane grating off axis in the convergent beam from a paraboloidal collecting mirror have been applied to obtain low resolution photoelectric spectra of over forty bright stars in the 1500–3000 Å region. Techniques of construction, alignment, calibration, and dc and pulse counting output data handling are described. The flight performance, in unstabilized Skylark rockets, is discussed.
