  • XMM-Newton observations of the Lockman Hole IV: spectra of the brightest AGN

    This paper presents the results of a detailed X-ray spectral analysis of a sample of 123 X-ray sources detected with XMM-Newton in the Lockman Hole field. This is the deepest observation carried out with XMM-Newton with more that 600 ks of good EPIC-pn data. We have spectra with good signal to noise (>500 source counts) for all objects down to 0.2

  • XO-6b: A transiting hot Jupiter around a fast rotating star

    Orbital properties of hot Jupiters depend on the temperature and rotation rate of their host stars. These observed correlations provide some of the very few constraints on their dynamical evolution. However, almost all the objects available to such studies orbit around relatively slow rotators, with stellar rotation periods usually several times

  • XTE J1855-026 is a supergiant X-ray binary

    The eclipsing X-ray pulsar XTE J1855-026 (Corbet & Mukai 2002, ApJ 577, 923) has been unambiguously identified by a recent Swift observation (Romano et al., ATel #1875) with the reddened early-type star proposed as candidate counterpart by Verrecchia et al. (ATel #102). High-quality spectra of the counterpart taken in August 2003 with the 4.2-m WHT

  • Young and very young stars in NGC 3372, the Carina Nebula

    Results are presented of a large-scale imaging photometric study of the stellar population in the northern part of NGC 3372 with a wavelength coverage from 0.33 to 2.5 μ m. All observations were made at Las Campanas Observatory. The sizes of the three stellar clusters, Tr 14, Tr 15 and Tr 16, were determined by means of star counts. Two-colour and

  • Young and very young stars in NGC 3372, the Carina Nebula

    The advantages of using a telescope of large aperture, like the GTC, for mid-infrared imaging are demonstrated. Examples are given to compare the characteristics of the images in the 8 to 13 μ m regime recently taken with the 2.1 m telescope at San Pedro Mártir with those obtained with a 10 meter class telescope. Finally, 10μ m images of the BN/KL
