Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 14 June 2019 9.00am EDT

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

Real-time procedures were executed on Jun 7 and 10 to perform full-frame dark current readouts of the Aspect Camera Assembly CCD.

Chandra passed through the first, second, and third eclipses of the season on Jun 7, 10, and 12 respectively, with nominal power and thermal performance.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes an observation of MAXI J1348-630, which was accepted as a Target of Opportunity on Jun 10.
