The Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope: instrument and data characteristics. Stecher T.P., et al. <Publ. Astron. Soc. Pac. 109, 584 (1997)> =1997PASP..109..584S ADC_Keywords: Observatory log ; Ultraviolet Mission_Name: UIT Description: UIT was one of three ultraviolet telescopes on the ASTRO-1 mission flown on the space shuttle Columbia during 2-10 December 1990. The same three instruments were later flown on the space shuttle Endeavour during 3-17 March 1995, as part of the ASTRO-2 mission. Exposures were obtained on 70-mm photographic film in the 1200-3300 Angstrom range using broadband filters and later digitized using a Perkin-Elmer microdensitometer. Image resolution was 3 arcseconds over a 40 minute field of view. Overall, UIT-1 obtained 821 exposures of 66 targets, and UIT-2 obtained 758 images of 193 targets. File Summary:

Note (1): All three ASTRO missions assigned a unique pointing ID for each target: Digit one - see the "Science Class" section below Digit two - Science Subclass See Bottom Digits 3/4 - Target Numbers within Subclass Digit 5 - N => Nth pointing at target with different roll or offset Digit 6 - 0 => only one pointing for target N => Nth pointing Digits 5 and 6 often not available Note (2): The UIT instrument included two six-position filter wheels. The "A" filters were sensitive in the near-UV while the "B" filters were sensitive in the Far-UV. Note (3): Dataset identification as used by preview page generator etc.
