MAST-produced spectral container files for STIS spectra. STIS spectra range from 1150 to 10,300 at low to medium spectral resolution, high spatial resolution echelle spectroscopy in the ultraviolet. STIS began operation in 1997. (Note the included echelle spectra are technically not yet supported by the SSAP.)
