During the last 24 hours Chandra exited the radiation belts, performed the post-belt ACIS CTI measurements and began a long GTO observation of Abell 370 with ACIS-S. This observation will continue until 11PM 10/22 and be followed by an observation of CL 0107+31 with ACIS-I for the remainder of the orbit.

The spacecraft systems continued to operate nominally.
