HRS2 Throughput Estimates per Resolution Element
It is important for the PI to realize that due to the design of the
HET the effective collecting area changes over a trajectory. Near the
end of a trajectory the HET has half the collecting area that it has near
the middle. As such two medium length visits centered
on middle of a track could be more valuable than a single long visit.
All throughput estimates are based upon center of track efficiency.
To see the effect of changing exposure times in a moving aperture try the HET Filling Factor Calculator.
We will adapt the old HRS throughput calculator as time and information allows.
Until we have the new one for HRS2 you can try our old HRS Throughput Calculator.
