[10.05] NICMOS Post-Observation Processing, Software and Reference Files

The calibration of NICMOS, Near Infrared Camera and Multi-Object Spectrometer, data has been evolving since its installation aboard HST in February 1997. This poster examines the versions of pipeline calibration software, calibration reference files, and software analysis tools available. Users should be aware of improvements that may have been made to both software and reference files since their observations were processed. Recalibration with inflight, correct epoch reference files using the latest pipeline and pedestal removal software may greatly enhance the quality of their data.
