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

Chandra passed through the fifth, sixth, and seventh eclipses of the season on Dec 22, 25, and 28 respectively, with nominal power and thermal performance.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes observations of CLQtooAlt1, which was accepted as a Target of Opportunity on Nov 28, and observations of 3C111 coordinated with HST and NuSTAR.
