We present results from the Extended X-ray Off-Plane Spectrometer (EXOS) sounding rocket payload. The payload was launched on November 13, 2009 and successfully obtained a spectrum of the Cygnus Loop Supernova Remnant. The instrument observed in the ~20 - 110 Angstrom bandpass with high resolution (~50) by utilizing an offplane reflection grating array. This payload is also the 2nd flight for a relatively new type of detector, the Gaseous Electron Multiplier (GEM) detector. We discuss the performance of these technologies in flight, as well as an overview of our plans for the next flight of this design.
