Miscellaneous :

Masetti et al. 2010 (A&A):
  • Tentatively associate IGR to VRMF 55
  • Optical spectroscopy of the putative counterpart
  • R=15.5, Av ~ 11.2
  • Balmer emission lines at z=0, intrinsically blue spectrum => XRB
  • d=2 kpc
  • Early type star spectral appearance => HMXB with an OB Giant companion
