STScI Analysis Newsletter (STAN)
Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph (STIS)
This STAN provides information for Phase I proposals, including information about relevant posters presented at the most recent AAS in January, post-safing updates, and ETC updates.
Here we summarize the posters presented at the most recent AAS meeting in January. The STIS Team presented posters detailing available modes with STIS, visible light observations using coronography, spatial scanning with STIS, and an update on the STIS software tools.
The Hubble Space Telescope (HST) was in safe mode for almost a month in October 2018. This article reviews any changes in STIS operations as a result.
Here, we note any important changes to the Cycle 27 ETC, including dark rate and throughput estimations.
