Abstract

On 1997 February 13, Space Shuttle astronauts placed the Near-Infrared Camera and Multiobject Spectrometer (NICMOS) into the Hubble Space Telescope. Following installation, the servicing mission orbital verification program (SMOV) performed extensive testing of the instrument to verify that it can be operated and calibrated effectively. This program is essentially completed, and routine science observations have begun in most of the NICMOS modes of operation. This Letter describes the performance levels of NICMOS at this time.
