AbstractUVIT consists of two co-aligned 38cm telescopes that provide ∼1 arsec resolution imaging over 28 arcmin fields, in FUV, NUV, and Visible bands simultaneously. Each channel has a choice of filters, and, for the UV channels, gratings. UVIT is also co-aligned with three X-ray telescopes on the observatory, and all operate together. This paper gives details of the operation and performance of the instrument.
