Miscellaneous :
Landi et al. 2012ATel 4233 :
  • Swift observation => refined X-ray position
  • XRT spectrum is well fitted with a power law having NH_Gal= 1.25 E21cm-2 and Gamma ~1.5
  • X-ray position is compatible with that of the bright ROSAT source 1RXS J171535.6-545015 and that of the Einstein Slew source 1ES 1711-54.7
  • Association between the star HD 155573 and hard X-ray source ruled out
  • X-ray source appears = blend of two distinct objects, both detected above 3 keV
  • Tentative positions and counterparts for these 2 sources
  • Both X-ray sources have comparable fluxes => both contribute to the high energy emission
