Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 24 April 2009 7.00am EDT

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

An aspect camera dark current calibration was performed from the on-board loads on Apr 22. Assessment of the data indicates nominal aspect camera performance and that the number of CCD warm pixels is increasing at the expected rate.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes an observation of M82 coordinated with XMM-Newton.
