Extract

The Wide-Field and Planetary Camera (WF/PC) is a CCD imaging instrument which is part of the Hubble Space Telescope. Ground-based observations have been made with a CCD system similar to those of the WF/PC in order to establish the standard star sequence to be used for in-flight photometric calibration. Because the WF/PC passbands differ from those in previous photometric use, the filters and CCDs will define a new photometric system. We outline here the procedures used to establish the calibration fields to be used in flight (see Harris et al. 1988 for additional details).
