Image Photon Counting System, including camera, electronics and control desk, designed by Professor Alec Boksenberg, used at the Anglo-Australian Observatory, wood/plastic/metal/glass, 1976-1995 Image Photon Counting System: (-1)Desk, composed of top, drawer unit and side unit with electronic wiring (-2)Detector control unit, square casing contains circuitry, on wheeled base (-3)S20 TV camera, on four legged stand (-4)Video monitor, cream plastic casing (-5)Video monitor, with blue plastic casing (-6)Console, blue plastic casing with metal switches (-7)External memory, frame contains 6 circuit boards (-8)Bunches of cables The IPCS detects individual photoelectric events produced by an optical image focused on the photocathode. A high-gain image intensifier is optically coupled to a continuously scanning television camera, and the position of events are stored in an external digital memory.

  • Help the British Library tag a million images

    Some of the million images the British Library have released on Flickr Commons have been added here for you to play with. The tags you add will help people find these historic images.

    They have asked people to use these special tags where appropriate: 'map', 'letter'+theletter e.g. LetterA, 'architecture', 'decoration', 'landscape', 'music', 'portrait', 'fashion'. If the image needs rotating, add 'rotatec' or 'rotatecounterc'.
