Hubble Space Telescope
High Speed Photometer

The High Speed Photometer (HSP) was one of the four original axial instruments on the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). The HSP was designed to make very rapid photometric observations of astrophysical sources in a variety of filters and passbands from the near ultraviolet to the visible. The HSP was removed from HST during the First Servicing Mission in December, 1993. Consequently, HSP data are only available through the HST Archive.
