Paper Abstract

This paper gives an update on the performance of the faint object camera following the highly successful installation of the corrective optics in COSTAR during the servicing mission. We review the effect that COSTAR has had on the point spread function and detector quantum efficiency, and discuss the improvements in our knowledge of sensitivity, PSF variations, camera distortion, and nonlinearity. The status of the f/48 relay, which has been successfully turned on a number of times, is reviewed.
