Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 30 December 2016 9.00am EST

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

Preparations are complete for the winter 2017 eclipse season; the season contains six eclipses and runs from Dec 30 to Jan 13. Real-time procedures were executed on Dec 29 to prepare for the first eclipse: one to activate SCS 29 and one to dump and clear the EPS glitch counters.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below.
