A high-efficiency evaporation-residue counter (named HERCULES) has been built. It consists of 64 thin fast-plastic scintillators arranged in four angular rings. Its design has been optimized for use with GAMMASPHERE. Presented are: the design and performance of the detection system, the most important results from its commissioning run (using 48Ti + 126Te and 48Ti + 142Nd reactions), and a brief outlook for spectroscopic studies in the actinide region.
