|During the last 48 hours, the team completed the Continuous Dither testing successfully, Chandra passed through the radiation belts with associated ACIS CTI measurements and completed observations of Cen-A and RX J0822-4300 with HRC-I, and began a long observation of PSR J0822-4300 with HRC-I.
One real-time action was completed at 12:05am 12/22 to change the aspect camera integration time from 0.704 sec to 1.696 sec following the Continuous Dither testing on Monday. The mission schedule for the 2 week period Dec 26 - Jan 9 is in final review and is expected to be approved today. [Also uplinked B-side SI Safing patch at 10am 12/21]
During the next 48 hours Chandra will complete the observation of PSR J0822-4300 with HRC-I, observe the center of M-31 with HRC-I, A521 with ACIS-I and pass through the radiation belts with associated ACIS CTI measurements.
The spacecraft systems continued to operate nominally.
