Stellar photometry in the region 1300 Å–2000 Å. Part I
A stellar photometer utilizing a Cassegrain telescope optical system was flown in a Skylark rocket. The photometer scanned the night sky using the precessional and roll motions of the rocket and obtained observations of some ninety-two stars at a wavelength of 1450 Å.
