ASCA weekly

Dear ASCA users,

During the last week end, a typhoon hit KSC in early morning on 
Saturday, June 28 (JST) and we have cancelled the scheduled operations 
for all  the three passes planned for operation. According to this unexpected
events,  we were not able to observe IC 1481 (Priority-A, PI: A. Wilson),
while the previous target A 1885 (priority-B, PI: R. Mushotzky) was
completed with additional several ksec exposure as bonus. Unfortunately,
we are not able to get a good observation condition in the rest  window
for IC 1481, then we will reschedule the observation of IC 1481 in the 
next window between late November to early December.

I am attaching below an ASCA observation schedule for the period
of July 28 to August 9. In this week we have two big project; one
a Cas A observation for an annual SIS calibration, another a 200-ksec
exposure of an AGN,  MCG-6-30-15 to get  a further improved iron
line profile in coordination with RXTE.
