Abstract

The COMPTEL instrument aboard the COMPTEL Gamma-Ray Observatory and its performance capabilities are described. Calibration data are used to determine the angular and energy response, and the effective detection area. The imaging properties of COMPTEL are demonstrated, and the sensitivity of Comptel to celestial gamma-ray sources are estimated from flight data.
