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

A real-time procedure was executed on Jun 2 to perform a routine self-check of the Electrical Interface Assembly (EIA) Sequencer.

Of note this week was the release on Jun 2 of CXCDS 10.4 for standard processing, which includes migration of database servers from Solaris to Linux and support for a planned flight software patch to add diagnostic capability to telemetry format 6.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes an observation of SNhunt275, which was accepted as a Director's Discretionary Time Target of Opportunity on May 26.
