Calibration Reference Files

A complete list of all reference files for recalibrating WFPC2 data are available on the CDBS WFPC2 Reference File pages. Included are alternate Reference Files generated by the WFPC2 IDT.

Creating WFPC2 Darks describes how WFPC2 darks are made. Includes downloads for users to generate darks.

A paper on "An Improved Distortion Solution for HST's WFPC2" by Jay Anderson and Ivan King is available at the PASP website. There is also a text file containing a Fortran routine that implements the Geometric Distortion solution. A new (October 2009) geometric distortion file is available for retrieval on the CDBS WFPC2 IDC file web page.
