Abstract
This paper gives an update on the performance of the Faint Object Camera--launched with the Hubble Space Telescope--since the last report two years ago. The primary camera, the f/96 relay, continues to work well, but the f/48 relay has recently developed serious problems. The stability of the f/96 relay has been very good with the only change being a small apparent decrease in UV sensitivity. Preliminary results for the f/48 DQE are presented. In-orbit UV flat fields have been obtained and the f/96 objective prisms and polarizers have been calibrated.
