Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 8 August 2014 9.00am EDT

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

A real-time procedure was executed on Aug 6 to perform a routine self-check of the Electrical Interface Assembly (EIA) Sequencer.

Chandra passed through the ninth and tenth eclipses of the season on Aug 3 and 6 respectively, with nominal power and thermal performance.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes an observation of the Crab coordinated with HST.
