Title: Optical Prescription of the HST
Authors: Redding, David C.
Issue Date: Jul-1995
Abstract: The optical prescription of the Hubble Space Telescope is estimated by prescription retrieval from defocused WF/PC-II images. New formulas relating the HST primary mirror conic constant and spherical aberration are presented. These new formulas reconcile long-standing differences between estimates of the conic constant derived from phase retrieval and estimates derived by other means.
