Abstract : This contract supported high resolution telescopic observations of a wide variety of celestial sources at wavelengths between 5 and 25 microns. The observations were made to provide information about targets to be observed by the Infrared Space Observatory Short Wavelength Spectrometer and to provide data relevant to the Air Force Celestial Background Scene Descriptor. Observations made at the European Southern Observatory and the NASA Infrared Telescope Facility are described.
