Miscellaneous :

Masetti et al. 2006 ATel 957:
  • Halpha, Hbeta, Hgamma, [OIII], [NII] and [SII] narrow emission lines at redshift z = 0.036500
  • Borderline between LINER and Sey 2
Masetti et al. 2008:
  • Optical spectroscopy is presented and detailed
  • Fluxes of Hα, Hβ and [OIII] are given
  • Low statistical significance of the INTEGRAL detection
  • Compton thin AGN
Rodriguez et al. 2009:
  • 4 Swift/XRT sources within INTEGRAL error box
  • Swift J151559.3-382548 is the most likely counterpart to the IGR source
  • 2MASX J15155970-3825468 slightly outside the XRT error box, but it is an extended source and therefore the positions are compatible.
  • 2MASX J15155970-3825468 is LEDA 2816946, optical counterpart is USNO-B1.0 0515-0356635
  • Confirmation of the probable AGN nature of the source
  • J=12.55, H=11.83, Ks=11.34, I=10.7, R=10.6, B=10.6
  • Possible high intrinsic absorption seen in X-ray spectrum.
