Abstract: The design of the imaging polarimeter based on the sectoral polarizer to measure the linear polarization of the extended and point celestial objects is presented. The spectral range of the instrument is 420-850 nm. It is limited by combination of the CCD quantum efficiency and polarizer transmittance. The field of view is 0.25° × 0.25°. The device is designed to work with up to 1m telescope and a relative aperture of f/10. %
