An array of non-imaging Cherenkov light collectors has recently been installed at the Telescope Array Middle Drum site, in the field-of-view of the TALE FD telescopes. This allows for imaging/non-imaging Cherenkov hybrid observations of air showers in the energy range just above 1 PeV. The performance of the array and the first analyses using hybrid measurements will be presented.
