Published Papers
Miscellaneous :

Malizia et al. 2011 ATel 3290:
  • Swift follow up => 2 possible counterparts. The brightest = radio source is favoured
  • Spectrum: double power law model Γ1=Γ2 ~2.4; IntrinsicNH~7e22 cm-2
  • F6cm~126 mJy, F20 cm~48 mJy
  • R~14.0, B~14.7, J~16.7, H~12.7, and K~11.6
Molina et al. 2012 (A&A):
  • Further discussion on the type of the source => Probable Sey 2 AGN
Masetti et al. 2013 (A&A):
  • Optical / NIR observation + spectroscopy of counterpart
  • LEDA 589690 is the brighter of the two X-ray sources and the one that is analysed
  • Broad emission line AGN
  • Sey 1.2 at z=0.123
  • MBH=3.8 108 MSun
Molina et al. 2015 (MNRAS):
  • X-Ray (XMM-Newton)/radio (GMRT) analysis
  • Radio showed the source is a giant radio Galaxy with linear size > 1.5 Mpc
  • X-ray shows the source is a broad line radio galaxy
  • Presence of warm and highly ionised gas
