Determination of Low-Frequency Flat-Field Structure from Photometry of Stellar Fields

Abstract

The low-frequency content of ACS flat fields cannot be accurately determined from ground-based calibration data or internal lamp exposures. It must therefore be determined from on-orbit science data. Photometry of a stellar field that is imaged multiple times with different pointing or roll is ideal for this purpose. I describe a mathematical algorithm to… (More)
