As the first post on this site, I should probably explain what this is about. Mainly, it’s intended to be source for all of the information that we’ve been able track (no pun intended) down relating to this incredible instrument. The Baker-Nunn cameras served a very important role in the early days of space surveillance and contributed greatly to our geodetic knowledge in the 60′s and 70′s. I could, of course, say more but it’s probably best that you just start browsing the site. Enjoy!
