Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 8 December 2000 7.30am EST

During the last week, Chandra completed the observing schedule as planned.

Real-time procedures were completed during the week to insert the LETG for a series of planned observations on Dec 5, and to retract the LETG on Dec 7. Both grating motions were nominal. In addition, a check of the CPE warm start count was made on dec 5 that showed the value remained at 1.

The planned observations for the coming week are as follows:

CDFS                      ACIS-I       Dec 10 
AXAF Southern Deep Field  ACIS-I       Dec 11 
Radiation Belts                        
AR Lac (multiple)         HRC-I        Dec 12 
M31 Nucleus/Trans         ACIS-I
CDFS                      ACIS-I
HR1099 (multiple)         HRC-I        Dec 14 
Radiation Belts                 
PMN J1131+0455            ACIS-S       Dec 15
