17.20 Cycle 26 Calibration Plan

The Cycle 26 calibration plan continues the standard monitoring programs established in previous Cycles, with minor adjustments to improve characterization of the instrument and to meet Cycle 26 GO calibration requirements. Special programs were added to assess the impact of increased spacecraft jitter on BAR5 coronagraphic exposures and to monitor the three primary white dwarf standard stars used for flux calibration.

A detailed summary of the calibration plans can be found on the STIS Calibration web page.
