Operations CXO Status Report

Operations CXO Status Report, Friday 14 Sep 2007, 8.30am 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 10 Sep. Assessment of the data indicated nominal performance and that the number of CCD warm pixels is increasing at the expected rate.

A Chandra image release was issued on 13 Sept of the Corona Australis region (containing, at its heart, the Coronet Cluster), one of the nearest and most active regions of ongoing star formation. For the beautiful image and further details, see: http://chandra.harvard.edu/photo/2007/coronet/

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes two sets of 21 calibration observations of AR Lac with the HRC.
