    Yes. The body is nearly similar, except it is not open at the end like Hubble. The solar wings on the sides are curved, because they were folded against the body when the spacecraft was launched.
    I'm working on trying to make a better picture. When I get it done I will put it up here.

    Of course. I'll try to get a better one up later. I'm home now and have access to a ruler. :)

    That pic is what Misty should look like, without the missile fairing. The body is actually most likely black. I'm making more progress on the picture, too.
    And I believe the prime contractor for this satellite was Lockheed Martin. They also worked on the Lacrosse radar imaging satellites for the NRO.

    You'll have to pardon my absence. I haven't had a chance yet to sit down and draw. I'm getting to it though. :)
