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

Real-time procedures were executed on Oct 6 to perform a routine self-check of the Electrical Interface Assembly (EIA) Sequencer and to perform a diagnostic dump of the Control Processing Electronics (CPE).

Of note this week was the release of the Sherpa 4.14.0 package for Python. This release includes various enhancements, documentation updates, bug fixes and infrastructure changes. For details see:

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes observations of Jupiter coordinated with Juno.
