The benefits of Astrophysical X-ray polarization measurements have been discussed in the literature for decades and with respect to a variety of detectors. Despite this, a dedicated polarimeter for the measurement of Astrophysical sources has not flown since the 1970's, when the definitive measurement of the Crab Nebula was made. More recently, an indirect measurement of the polarization of two gamma-ray bursts has been extracted from BATSE data, re-emphasizing the importance of polarization measurements in constraining a physical model. We describe a sensitive and, and extremely versatile, photoelectric polarimeter using a micro-pattern gas detector, with an 80micron pixel ASIC anode, to image the primary photoelectron track. The detector can be optimized to a preferred energy range between 1 keV and 50 keV. We present measurements of...
