The WFPC2 was installed in the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) in 1993 December. Since then, the instrument has been providing high-quality images. A significant amount of calibration data has been collected to aid in the understanding of the on-orbit performance of the instrument. Generally, the behavior of the camera is similar to its performance during the system-level thermal vacuum test at JPL in 1993 May. Surprises were a significant charge-transfer-efficiency (CTE) problem and a… 
The photometric performance and calibration of the Hubble Space Telescope advanced camera for surveys
ABSTRACT We present the photometric calibration of the Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS). The ACS was installed in the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) in 2002 March. It comprises three cameras: the Wide
Phobos Disk-Integrated Photometry: 1994–1997 HST Observations
Abstract A program of synoptic monitoring of Mars was carried out with the Hubble Space Telescope from August 8, 1994, through October 9, 1997, using the Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2). With
Charge‐Transfer Efficiency of WFPC2
ABSTRACT Observations of ω Centauri have been used to characterize the charge‐transfer efficiency (CTE) of the Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2) on board the Hubble Space Telescope. A set of
The Hubble Space Telescope Treasury Program on the Orion Nebula Cluster
The Hubble Space Telescope (HST) Treasury Program on the Orion Nebula Cluster (ONC) has used 104 orbits of HST time to image the Great Orion Nebula region with the Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS),
Performance tests of a DIVA-CCD: before and after proton irradiation
The E2V CCD42-20 NIMO type CCD was tested in view of its use for the german astrometric satellite mission DIVA. As in other astrometric missions (FAME, GAIA) the CCDs will be operated in TDI mode
On the Photometric Consequences of Charge‐Transfer Inefficiency in WFPC2
Charge-transfer effects in photometry with Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2) aboard the Hubble Space Telescope are investigated by a comparison of WFPC2 observations with ground-based photometry
HST/WFPC2 observations of the LMC pulsar PSR B0540–69
Context. The study of the younger, and brighter, pulsars is important for understanding the optical emission properties of isolated neutron stars through observations which, even in the 10 m-class
The Calibration of the Hubble Space Telescope Kuiper Belt Object Search: Setting the Record Straight
The limiting magnitude of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) data set used by Cochran and coworkers in 1995 to detect small objects in the Kuiper belt is reevaluated, and the methods used are described
Simultaneous Spectroscopy and Imaging of the Jovian Aurora with the Hopkins Ultraviolet Telescope and the Hubble Space Telescope
Simultaneous ultraviolet spectra and images of the north polar aurora of Jupiter were obtained on 1995 March 9 with the Hopkins Ultraviolet Telescope (HUT) and the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). This
Location accuracy limitations for CCD cameras
The accurate measurement of the position of celestial objects is a fundamental step for several astrophysical investigations. For ground based instruments, the atmosphere is considered the basic
