Abstract
The present report generalizes materials of publication /1-3/. In doing so /1/ and /3/ were presented at appropriate symposiums only as poster reports and were not widely discussed. Creation of reliable physical and engineering models of sequence of leader-return stroke of lightning (L-RS) and an attachment process is hampered by lack of actual information on the optical picture of low-luminous streamer structures of lightning. Cameras based on an image converter tubes (ICT) /4/ serve as an alternative of traditional optical-mechanical means for recording a lightning image. Such cameras allowed to obtain new reults when investigating streamer processes of a long spark what made it possible to formulate a set of hypothesizes relating to a leader process of lightning /5-7/. Here there are given the characteristics of the image converter instrumentation complex adapted to the work with lightning and a long spark and there are presented the results of its tests in the All-Russian Electro-technical Institute (VEI) named after V.I. Lenin when recording a long spark on the open high-voltage stand in Istra (near Moscow).
