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

An Operations Control Center ground system software update was installed on May 29 to provide more complete access to DSN station data. The change was made in connection with an update to the ground system telemetry data base.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes an observation of SGR 1627-41 that was accepted as a target of opportunity on May 28. The observation will be coordinated with RXTE.
