Vidicon camera

Post by djrm » Wed Jul 24, 2019 7:24 pm

Greetings everyone,
I have just acquired this old Vidicon camera but know nothing much about it. I've told it may be a GEC from around 1970.
Does anyone have any more information about it? A manual or schematic would be very welcome.
I see there are some articles in back issues of journals to download here but its difficult to search not knowing more.
The picture shows the camera with the top removed and one side hinged down for access. There is a C mount on the end holding a lens.
A large rack and pinion arrangement moves the complete tube assembly for focusing.
Kind regards, David.
