These two big tubes from the sixties have a similar
construction. These were used in the display unit from an
electron microscope. One is a single beam, used for
display and probably having a green phosphor, the
other a dual beam tube was used for photographic
purpose. One gun was used for the image, the other for
data, the phosphor color is blue into the UV spectrum for
20th Century Electronics produced 11 different CRTs
but only two with a square face, these are the two tubes.
