Low-light-level television systems have been utilized to gain information on meteors, aurorae, and other faint, transient astronomical phenomena. Such phenomena change not only their position as a function of time, but also their photometric and spectral characteristics in as little as 1/60 second, thus requiring unique methods of analysis. Data observed with television systems and recorded on video tape have been analyzed with a system utilizing both analog and digital techniques. Both off-the-shelf equipment and inhouse developments are used to isolate sequences of moving images and to store them in a form suitable for photometric and spectral reduction. Current emphasis of the analysis effort is directed at the measurement of the first-order emission lines of meteor spectra, the results of which will yield important compositional information concerning the nature of the impinging meteoroid.
