Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 28 October 2005 8.30am EDT

During the last week the observing schedule was replanned to include an observation of GRB051022 that was approved as a fast turn-around Target Of Opportunity (TOO) on October 22. Loads were replanned and uplinked on October 25. Observations of the targets 87GB 1437+4423 and MACSJ0159.0-3412 were impacted by the TOO and will be rescheduled in a later load.

A real-time procedure was completed on Oct 26 to update the on-board ephemeris.

The Chandra Quarterly Review was conducted in Cambridge this week, and next week the CXC will host the annual Chandra Calibration Workshop (10/31-11/1), and the 6-years with Chandra conference (11/2-11/4).

The schedule of targets for next week is shown below.
