In order to monitor the plasma within the Wendelstein 7-X stellarator, the IPP needed cameras capable of fitting into the tight space around the instrument and more importantly to opera-te reliably close to the large magnetic fi eld necessary for the confinement. The Cygnet was successfully tested up to 1.8 Tesla and the Owl up to 2.3 Teslas. 20 Cygnet cameras in the 10 immersion tubes work and produce images surveying the divertor and the limiter region. Below is a set of the camera images arranged according to the position in the Wendelstein plasma vessel.
