S. Casertano, et al., eds. STIS Target Acquisition

By Steve Kraemer, Ron Downes, Rocio Katsanis, Mike Crenshaw and Rich Robinson


Abstract. We describe the STIS autonomous target acquisition capabilities. We also present the results of dedicated tests executed as part of Cycle 7 calibration, following post-launch improvements to the STIS flight software. The residual pointing error from the acquisitions are < 0.5 CCD pixels, which is better than preflight estimates. Execution of peakups show clear improvement of target centering for slits of width 0 ′′.1 or smaller. These results may be used by Guest Observers in planning target acquisitions for their STIS programs. 1
