This article is devoted to the development of a compact optoelectronic device for recording images of remote objects while determining their geographical coordinates. The optical layout of the device is presented, with an algorithm for operating it. The operating principle is described, along with a technique for designing a collimating optical device that records on its photos and video images the geographical coordinates, the date, and the time that the picture of the object was taken.
