Abstract
The Faint Object Camera is a unique Scientific Instrument of the Hubble Space Telescope; operating it at top performance is critical for the quality of the science data and a most efficient usage. This paper describes the steps taken to optimize detector performance, minimize the effects of thermal variations, and maximize the allocated observing time.
