To be read in conjunction with Section 1.2 of the WFPC2 Instrument Handbook, Version 4.0The Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph (STIS) offers imaging capabilities in both the optical and ultraviolet that for some limited applications offers superior performance to WFPC2. The interested reader should refer to the Cycle 8 Call for Proposals for a brief overview, and the updated STIS Instrument Handbook, version 2, June 1998 and Section 1.2 of the WFPC2 Instrument Handbook, version 4, for more details.
Associated with this Cycle 8 CP is a preview of the Advanced Camera for Surveys to be available for Cycle 9 which will provide a further enhancement of HST imaging capabilities. Observers may wish to note both current and future capabilities in order to develop a long term proposal strategy.
