Cycles 6 and up took place during the Spitzer 'warm' mission after the cryogenic mission ended. After cryogen depletion, the observatory continued operating using only the 3.6 and 4.5 micron channels on the IRAC instrument. The longer wavelength IRAC channels (5.6 and 8.0 microns) and the MIPS and IRS instruments were unavailable.
