"RARE" iconoscope tube
 
Someone in Europe has their head up their butt. Look at this "rare iconoscope" tube they are wanting to start the bid at about $215 plus outrageous shipping .

Hint: It is a piece of trash, not rare or even an iconoscope. And to even sweeten the deal, it's BROKEN!! (PS-It's a broken VIDICON down to air and very commonly found for a few dollars or less)

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Collection-...c=1&rmvSB=true

Was 200 Euros, now 180!!!

I sent him a message of what it is and it is hardly worth much. His reply: "Thanks man , i ll show it tomorow at my friend électricienman to test it."
Just wondering, if he doesn't know what it is, how are they going to test it???

Well, GOOD LUCK!!

It's only social redemption is that is comes with a money back guarantee including shipping.

Julian, your link goes to a page of hardware. Try a link with the auction number instead.

My link wasn't intended to. It was to show Julian how to post an ebay item link.

Shame on you Jim!! I just wanted to see if anyone was listening!

Now try it. I copied it twice and the second one didn't get all of the URL.

Dammit, I know I posted on this, but where the hell'd my post go?

Anyway, it's not broken. The electrons flow a lot more freely if there's no glass in front of them to slow them down :D

Found it. It's in the other identical thread Julian posted.

But... what the heck IS it?

CoogarXR 05-08-2018 11:22 AM

I have probably 200+ of those. I have tons of plumbicon/vidicon and similar camera tubes if anybody needs one. I won't even charge you $200! LOL

The RCA engineer who designed the TK-76 offered to give me a set of three NOS plumbicons for my camera years ago. My natural inertia and laziness kept me from taking him up on his offer. XQ-1427 or 1428 will work in my Ikegami HL-83 if you have any of those (R, G & B.)

Some day I need to get off my duff and sort them and see what I actually have. Probably within the next month or so I'll get to it.

I once had, and used a lot, a very special vidicon, the usual 1" camera size. It had
a target that was PbS/PbSe (instead of the PbO of a Plumbicon) and thus worked
well into the infrared, to about 2.8 microns! It was in a very ordinary Sony industrial camera
but the lens was a single element of silicon and thus opaque to the eye. In a room lit by
incandescent light it took rather ordinary looking pictures (using light in the range
1.1 - 2.5 microns). In a room lit by fluorescents only, the long kind, it showed only the
filaments. A soldering iron was quite bright. Outdoors, trees had white leaves.
All pictures were sharp, great gamma and contrast.

We used it to look at infrared laser beams.

What makes this a color TV thread?

A harmless mistake, pure and simple!
