  • The XMM-OM instrument extends the spec- tral coverage of the XMM-Newton observatory into the ul- traviolet and optical range. It provides imaging and time- resolved data on targets simultaneously with observations in the EPIC and RGS. It also has the ability to track stars in its field of view, thus providing an improved post- facto aspect solution for the spacecraft. An overview of the XMM-OM and its operation is given, together with cur- rent information on the performance of the instrument.
