Paper Abstract

The SECCHI Extreme Ultraviolet Imager (EUVI) is a pair of EUV telescopes on the NASA STEREO mission that was successfully launched in October 2006. The two telescopes, one on each STEREO spacecraft observe the solar corona in three dimensions out to 1.7 solar radii, and with a pixel resolution of 1.59 arcsec. The focus of the EUVI observations is the initiation and early evolution of coronal mass ejections (CMEs). This paper presents a preliminary assessment of the on-orbit performance of the EUVI.
