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

A real-time procedure was executed on Dec 6 to perform a routine self-check of the Electrical Interface Assembly (EIA) Sequencer.

Of note this week was the release of a new CSCView application that allows user access to Chandra Source Catalog 2.0 source properties and data products.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes an observation of HOPS 383 coordinated with NOAO, an observation of NGC 1313 X-1 coordinated with NuSTAR, an observation of NGC 2419 coordinated with VLA, an observation of J1342+0928, which was accepted as a Director's Discretionary Time Target of Opportunity on Jul 12, and an observation of DM Tau, which was accepted as a Director's Discretionary Time Target of Opportunity on Nov 22.
