Tomsick et al. 2015 (ApJ):
  • Chandra observation => discovery of 18 sources in fov. The likely counterpart is CXOU J082941.0-425158
  • 2MASX J08294112-4251582 is at 0.44" from CXOU source. J=14.0, H=12.5, Ks=12.3
  • Presence in WISE with m=6.4 @ 22.1μm.
  • A second NIR source ~ 16" that appears to be extended => The 2 sources might be a pair of interacting galaxies
  • Chandra spectrum => Absorbed power law, NH=19 x 1022 cm-2, Γ~-0.8 but poorly constrained and highly degenerate.
  • Adding INTEGRAL spectrum =>NH=60 x 1022 cm-2, Γ~1.5 typical of an AGN, possibly Sey 2
  • Possible (2σ significance) line at 6 keV => z=0.07
