The streak tube is intended for a fast running processes image registration in streak and multiframe modes. In the latter case frames are located in one line. The streak tube has a photocatode applied on an input window made of uviol glass or magnesium fluoride, an accelerating gird electrode, a focusing electrode, a pair of deflecting plates designed as two through-pass elements of 75 Ohm wave resistance and a blue/green phosphor screen applied on a fiber-optic screen
