Abstract : These results of an investigation of images of the corona in the green line were obtained by an expeditionary force of the Astronomical Observatory of Kiev State University in Chili in February, 1952, while observing a full solar eclipse. The observations were made with a 5-meter prismatic camera. The images of the corona in Lambda 5303 Angstroms were subjected to detailed photometric interpretation on two plates at positional angles 283 degrees - 333 degrees (computed from the pole of the sun). The method of T. V. Krat was used to separate the monochromatic coronal luminosity from the overall luminosity, consisting of the luminosity of the corona and dispersed light in earth's atmosphere and in the instrument.
