Observation of the primary beam and scattered electrons is important for centring the electron beam and establishing the optimum conditions in a gas electron diffraction experiment. Electronic control utilizing the beam stop and the rotating sector (see e.g. Schafer 1976) as electron collectors seems to be a suitable method. Such a detecting device, using a centrally friction driven sector which needs no additional contacts, is described.
