The first measurements of the capture reactions for the astrophysical γ-process using HECTOR, a total absorption spectrometer are presented. Two reactions: 102Pd(p,γ)103Ag and 90Zr(α,γ)94Mo were measured using the γ-summing technique. The results are compared with the previous measurements found in the literature and with the NON-SMOKER predictions. The results from the current work are in a good agreement with the data found in the literature and serve as a test of the newly developed detector.
