STIS is a second generation Hubble Space Telescope (HST) instrument launched in 1997. STIS has 13 spectroscopy and 4 imaging science modes covering the wavelength range of 115 to 1000 nm (ultraviolet to near infrared). Data are collected with two 1024 x 1024 Multi-Anode Micro-channel Arrays (MAMA) and one 1024 x 1024 Charge-Coupled Device (CCD). STIS provides spectral resolutions from R~100 to R~100,000. The two dimensional detectors allow spatially resolved spectra to be obtained for extended astronomical objects..
