Possible Evidence for NICMOS Focus

Abstract

Combining the results of measurements of NICMOS focus and temperature (outside NICMOS dewar), we have found a correlation between detrended NICMOS focus and detrended temperature. The correlation suggests that there is a thermally induced (quasi)periodic component in NICMOS focus variation which has a time scale resembling the HST precessional period. This… (More)
