Miscellaneous :
Esposito et al. 2012ATel 4309 :
  • IBIS spectrum fitted with power law Γ=1.6
Bozzo et al. 2012ATel 4322 :
  • Swift XRT follow up
  • No IR/optical counterpart within XRT error box, but 2MASS J17555833-2613457 and J17555783-2613530 lie just outside
  • XRT spectrum => NH~6.0 x1022 cm-2 and Γ~1.4 (large uncertainties)
Rojas et al. 2012ATel 4342 :
  • Search for IR counterpart in the archival VVV survey
  • Presence of 10 sources in addition to the two 2MASS sources
  • None show significant variability in the Ks band
  • Cannot tell which (if any) of these sources is the quiescent counterpart to IGR J17559-2612
