The Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph Design
ABSTRACT The Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph (STIS) instrument was installed on the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) during the second servicing mission, in 1997 February. Four bands cover the… Expand
The On-Orbit Performance of the Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph
The Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph (STIS) was successfully installed into the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) in 1997 February, during the second HST servicing mission, STS-82. STIS is a versatile… Expand
Third order aberrations in cassegrain-type telescopes and coma correction in servo-stabilized images.
Pointing errors in telescopes carried by space vehicles can be compensated by servo-control of the secondary mirror. This introduces some aberrations in the stabilized image, the magnitude of which… Expand

The composition of the Venus clouds and implications for model atmospheres
The balloon-telescope flight of February 21, 1964, using reflected radiations near 1.1 μ, showed that the upper Venus atmosphere contains water vapor in amounts comparable to those in similar levels… Expand

- 10 February 1981
On the basis of a simple model for diffraction by the groove, we show that the efficiency of an echelle is high in the Littrow arrangement, but becomes markedly less if the angle of deviation between… Expand
Balloon-Borne Ultraviolet Stellar Spectrometer
The purpose of this paper is to de-scribe a balloon-borne telescope-spec-trometer, designed to perform spectro-photometric measurements of the Mg II doublet at 2795 Å and 2802 Å in stars of visual… Expand
