Miscellaneous :

Masetti et al. 2012 (A&A):
  • Optical spectroscopy of the suggested counterpart (UNSO-A2.0 src)
  • R=14.8, Av=0.726 mag, d<16600 pc
  • Source is a symbiotic binary, counterpart is a M2 III star
Luna et al. 2012 ATel 3960:
  • Swift XRT obs of the field => 2 sources
  • 1st
    • Associated to the Symbiotic star suggested as counterpart by Masetti
    • 9arcmin from the IBIS source+low X-ray flux => refute its association to the IGR source
  • 2nd
    • at 6.8' from the IBIS position
    • Spectrum well described by absorbed plasma with kT=2.9 keV and NH=0.2 x 1022 cm-2
    • Closest source listed in SIMBAD is actually IGR J17198-3020 at 3.1 arcmin.
