Abstract

An automatic camera system for solar corona photography during total solar eclipses was designed, fabricated, and used during the total solar eclipse of 20 July 1963. The system consisted of two cameras which were automatically programmed. One camera photographed the inner corona; the other camera photographed the outer corona. Each camera was mounted on a declination unit attached to an equatorial drive to track the sun.
