Throughput is end-to-end effective area divided by the geometric area of an unobstructed 2.4 meter aperture.

In imaging mode, unfiltered STIS throughput exceeds WFPC2 throughput. For visible light imaging, ACS should have better throughput than STIS.
Visible light throughput curves for unfiltered STIS MAMA detectors show that the FUV-MAMA is effectively solar blind, though long wavelength contamination in cool stars can be significant in imaging mode.
Updated throughput estimates for CCD imaging modes (unfiltered and F28X50LP) were implemented in the pipeline on 2001-Jul-11.
