Abstract:

We derive transformations between central wavelengths on the linear ramp filters and aperture locations in the WFPC2 focal plane. Tables containing appropriate HST pointing offsets are then generated for use by the TRANS observation planning software. In closing, we review software tools and calibration procedures for linear ramp filter data.
