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

A real-time procedure was completed on Nov 15 to update the on-board Ephemeris.

A Chandra image release was issued on Nov 15 of the nebula NGC 281, a bustling hub of star formation about 10,000 light years away. The composite X-ray and optical image shows regions where new stars are forming and older regions containing stars about 3 million years old. For further details see: http://chandra.harvard.edu/photo/2007/ngc281/
