Abstract
The purpose of this paper is to de-scribe a balloon-borne telescope-spec-trometer, designed to perform spectro-photometric measurements of the Mg II doublet at 2795 Å and 2802 Å in stars of visual magnitude 5 or brighter, with a spectral resolution of 0.5 Å. These experiments are part of a research program conducted by the Manned Spacecraft Center, Houston, Texas. The scientific goals, and results obtained in two flights in 1971 have been described elsewhere by Kondo e. a. (Ref. 1).
