[42.04] Far Ultraviolet Observations of 3C 273 with the Berkeley Spectrograph on the ORFEUS-II Mission

We observed the bright QSO 3C 273 with the Berkeley Spectrograph for about 10,500 seconds during the ORFEUS-II mission. The instrument achieved a peak effective area of about 9 cm^2, and a resolution of about 0.33 Å\ between 910 and 1216 ÅWe will present the far ultraviolet spectrum and a preliminary analysis of the Galactic/intergalactic absorption features therein. This work is supported by NASA grant NAG5-696.
