Abstract

 

The Link Observatory 10-inch photographic refractor is designed to use 8x10 inch glass plates.  Inexpensive sheet film can be used by holding the film flat behind a sheet of clear glass in the plateholder.  Experiments with panchromatic film and yellow or red filters were not very satisfactory, due to the blue-corrected objective's steep focal gradient at longer wavelengths.  However, blue-sensitive Kodak SB-5 X-ray film produces excellent images.
