Miscellaneous :

Stephen et al. 2008 ATel 1680:
  • Mention possible association of RXTE and INTEGRAL sources
Markwardt 2008 ATel 1681:
  • No significant pulsations detected at 120s with Swift
  • Spectrum highly absorbed, with NH~8 x1022 cm2 (for a power law continuum, with Γ=1.15)
  • 2MASS J18242381-1424509 has K=10 and is a plausible counterpart.
  • Lack of pulsation of the Swift source prevents a firm association with the XTE source, but variability of the flux may argue in favour of an association
Markwardt 2008 ATel 1686:
  • Only one source detected in Swift observation of almost the entire XTE error circle
  • Detection of the 120s pulsation in the Swift data
  • Confirms that the XTE and IGR sources are the same
