Astronomical Observations in Support of the Hubble Space Telescope Project
To support the pointing of HST, the development of the Guide Star Selection System was necessary. An integral part of this system is the Guide Star Catalog, containing about 20 million objects, which is based on Schmidt survey plates covering the entire sky and on related observations, specifically to establish the photometric sequences for the individual plates.
