Abstract
Observations have been performed during 5 hours on the occasion of the flight Cygnus III of a 450 kg gondola equipped with a 60 cm 0 far-infrared Cassegrain telescope [1] and a 380'000 m3 stratospheric H2 balloon at a height of 39 km at the CNES balloon station, Aire/Adour, France, on May 12/13, 1992. Successful measurements have been made on the dust emission of the molecular cloud complexes DR21/W75N and S106 at 250 p.m wavelength as well as on Jupiter for calibration. Results are compared with the 80 gm and 130 p.m images of the similar flight Cygnus II [2-4] on September 26/27, 1990, which was reported at the previous conference [4].
