Published Papers
Miscellaneous :
Tomsick et al. 2012 (ApJ):
  • Chandra observations => 2 X-ray sources in IBIS error box
  • One clearly favoured as counterpart to IGR
  • Source found in USNO-A2.0, USNO-B1.0, NOMAD, GSC 2.3.2, 2MASS, 2MAS X, DENIS, and WISE catalog
  • Couterpart is extended and consistent with the galaxy LEDA 3077397/WKK985204
  • Likely association to the radio source MGPS J154126-502823
  • Spectrum => NH < 1.1 x 1022 cm-2, Γ=-0.4, extrapolation to IBIS range => cut off needed
  • Low NH may indicate a Sey 1
Masetti et al. 2013 (A&A):
  • Optical / NIR observation + spectroscopy of counterpart
  • Narrow emission line AGN
  • Probable Sey 2 at z=0.032
