|Cycle 23 STIS Instrument Handbook|
14.1 This chapter provides reference material to help you select your filter and detector configuration and determine your observing plan (e.g., total required exposure time, and number of exposures). This chapter is, for the most part, organized by filter and detector. For each imaging mode the following are provided:
• Section 14.8 presents screening tables of bright object magnitudes for sources of different spectral type, for use in deciding if a MAMA imaging observation is safe.
• Section 14.6 presents information on the geometry of the MAMA and CCD imaging modes.
• Section 14.7 presents information on the changes of the PSF with position in the STIS field of view.
