Hitachi 2 Inch Image Orthicon tube type HS124E

The Hitachi tube (lower tube) is one of a pair that appeared at auction and they were bought by an Australian collector, Troy Walters, who forwarded some pictures to me.


Not much is known about these tubes, data sheet? where were they used?


The upper tube is a standard 3 inch tube type GL-5820 by General Electric.
