One of Hubble's three Fine Guidance Sensors measured the position of the Methuselah star.
Hubble has three optical instruments called Fine Guidance Sensors (FGS).
Using the Hubble Space Telescope's Fine Guidance Sensors, a dozen astronomers in the United States, France, and Switzerland collaborated to detect the orbit-induced motion of Gliese 876, a 10th-magnitude red dwarf 15 light-years away in Aquarius.
On the second sortie, astronauts will install a new 486 computer (tested on John Glenn's shuttle flight last year) and replace one of the three Fine Guidance Sensors. The FGSs are actually sensitive electronic cameras used to point the observatory precisely at its desired targets.
