Oral Presentation SRG Instruments and Operations


Diogo Coutinho (MPE)


The cruise phase of SRG to L2 was used to verify that all eROSITA systems had survived launch and no degradation in the functionality was present. The critical one-time operations of opening the telescope cover and cooling the CCD detectors to -90°C were also carried out during this phase.
This talk presents an overview of the telescope operations during the commissioning phase that verified functionality of thermal and electrical systems and commissioned the CCD cameras before the important Calibration and Pointed Verification phase started. It reports on challenges encountered and summarizes the results from this phase.
