Miscellaneous :

Kuiper et al. 2008 ATel 1774:
  • Time averaged INTEGRAL spectrum =>power law Γ=1.85 20-70 keV flux of 1.2 x 10-11 erg/cm2/s.
  • 0.3-7 keV (Chandra) spectrum fitted with an absorbed power law Γ=1.0 and NH=0.7 x 1022 cm-2.
  • Optical => extended object consistent with being at least three unresolved point-like sources
  • Source = AGN or a peculiar galactic X-ray binary.
Ratti et al. 2010:
  • Chandra and optical observation of counterpart
  • g'=23.35, r'=20.67, i'=19.12
  • G5 III to M2 III, although G type less likely source would be too far
  • LMXB with K to M secondary.
