This feature of Applied Optics consists of papers on the Hubble Space Telescope and its instruments as well as other new instruments and other new optics technology for space science. Many of the papers are an outgrowth of the papers presented at the Second Space Optics Topical Meeting, October 1991, in Williamsburg, Va. This introduction provides an overview for the papers related to the Hubble Space Telescope: measurement of the error and approaches to correct for the error.
