Operations CXO Status Report, 04 December 2009, 9.00am EDT

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

Chandra passed through the second, third and fourth eclipses of the 2009 winter season on Nov 29, Dec 1 and 4 respectively, with nominal power and thermal performance.

A real-time procedure was executed on Dec 2 to perform a routine self-check of the Electrical Interface Assembly (EIA) Sequencer.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes observations of Mrk 509 coordinated with HST.
