The STIS instrument was installed on the HST in February 97 and is
currently being commissioned. It covers the wavelength range 115-1000 nm,
with spectral resolving powers between 20 and 200,000. The two-dimensional
detector formats, 2048x2048 pixels for the MAMA detectors covering the range
115-310 nm and 1024x1024 pixels for the CCD detector covering the range
165-1000 nm, allow echelle spectroscopy with high resolution and broad
wavelength coverage in the UV, and long slit and slitless spectroscopy and
imaging throughout the entire spectral range.
