Abstract
A versatile optical instrument capable of all-sky auroral imaging at low light levels is described. The All-Sky Imaging Photometer uses as a detector an image dissector photomultiplier tube operating in a photon-counting mode. A miniprocessor interprets commands entered interactively by the operator through a terminal, and controls data acquisition and display. A motorized filter wheel holding up to six interference filters permits monitoring of auroral emis-sions at monochromatic wavelengths.
