We examine the interrelationship of the issues of sensitivity, image centroiding precision, and field of view and how they interact with the SIRTF pointing requirement to determine a FGS focal plane configuration. While the examples are specifically oriented toward SIRTF, our approach is general and can be applied to other CCD-based star sensor systems.
