Pye  Mk6 vintage IO camera

Pye Mk6 camera with the side open.
The Pye Mk6 camera was of hybrid construction and the line scan chassis shown in mostly thermionic valves (tubes). The chassis had a novel fixing that allowed the outer camera side to come down leaving the scan chassis vertical so that the underside was accessible for maintenance. The two large valves are EL360 pentodes.
