In December, 2004, we observed the open star cluster h Per with Chandra ACIS for 40 ksec. We have identified more than 200 X-ray sources on the image and found optical counterparts for many of them. The ANCHORS pipeline, which we used to process the data, provides homogeneous output products for this and many other star forming regions. Among the outputs are fits to the instrumental low resolution spectra for cool pre-main sequence stars in h Per that yield flux, temperature and absorption for these sources.

Funding for this investigation has been provided by Chandra contract NAS8-39073 and NASA Grant GO5-6007A
