"FOC Aperture Location in Cycle 3 and SMOV"
by W. Hack and A. Nota

Abstract excerpted from the report:

In this report we describe the observation strategy adopted for FOC	
aperture location in Cycle 3 and SMOV. We discuss the observations
and the images obtained. We describe the data reduction techniques
and the results obtained in Cycle 3, in SMOV (before and after
COSTAR DOB deployment), and in Cycle 4. We compare our results to
the conclusion of the Heptathlon test, and document all the errors in
the numbers and in the procedures we found along the way. Finally,
we provide a summary of our current FOC aperture alignment situation
and relative accuracies.
