Paper Abstract

This paper presents the initial on-orbit performance of the corrective optics space telescope axial replacement or COSTAR. At this time the FOC and FOS channels are aligned and the data analyzed. The GHRS is aligned and initial results are presented. The installation and checkout of the COSTAR into the HST was flawless. The optical performance should enable the science lost to spherical aberration of the HST's primary mirror to be fully recovered.
