We present the imaging observations made with the Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph of the Hubble Deep Field–South. The field was imaged in 4 bandpasses: a clear CCD bandpass for 156 ksec, a long-pass filter for 22–25 ksec per pixel typical exposure, a near-UV bandpass for 23 ksec, and a far-UV bandpass for 52 ksec. The clear visible image is the deepest observation ever made in the UV-optical wavelength region, reaching a 10 AB magnitude of 29.4 for an object of area 0.2 square arcseconds. The field contains QSO J2233-606, the target of the STIS spectroscopy, and extends 50′′×50′′ for the visible images, and 25′′×25′′ for the ultraviolet images. We present the images, catalog of objects, and galaxy counts obtained in the field (Refer to PDF file for exact formulas).
