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

A real-time procedure was completed on Oct 16 to update the on-board ephemeris.

A Chandra image release was issued on Oct 14 that reveals dramatic details of a portion of the Crescent Nebula, a giant gaseous shell created by powerful winds blowing from the massive star HD 192163. For details see: http://chandra.harvard.edu/photo/2003/ngc6888/ .

The observing schedule for next week is shown below and includes an observation of T Tau coordinated with a VLBI observation.
