We have designed and manufactured a multi-purpose electronic, computer-operated blink-comparator and measuring engine. It has been specifically designed to facilitate the examination of stellar images on Uppsala Schmidt photographic plates, identify and establish coordinates of new suspect variable stars appearing on the plates being examined, and also to derive photometric values for those stars manifesting variability.
