News and Highlights

Here's the latest Instrument Science Report (ISR) about the CTE photometric correction for ACS/WFC. The new formula is based on a new model we derived using post-SM4 data. The formula was obtained using a new statistical approach. Click here to access the online CTE correction calculator based on the latest calibration data.
