The High Energy Transmission Grating gives spectral resolving powers of up to 1000 over the energy range 0.4-8 keV. The HETG is performing as expected and has already obtained spectra from several stellar coronae and binary X-ray sources, the Crab, SS433, SNR E0102-72, NGC 1275 and other AGN. Some of the early results will be presented that illustrate the capabilities of the instrument and it's power to performdiagnostics of cosmic plasmas.
