The radio-quiet neutron star 1E1207.4-5209 was the target of a 260 ksXMM-Newton observation, that yielded, as a by product, a harvest ofabout 200 serendipitous X-ray sources above a limiting flux of 2 imes10$^-15$ erg cm$^-2$ s$^-1$ in the 0.3-8 keVenergy range. In view of the intermediate latitude of our field (bsime10deg), it comes as no surprise that the log N-log S distribution ofour serendipitous sources is different from those measured either in theGalactic Plane or at high galactic latitudes.

Abstract

The radio-quiet neutron star 1E1207.4-5209 was the target of a 260 ksXMM-Newton observation, that yielded, as a by product, a harvest ofabout 200 serendipitous X-ray sources above a limiting flux of 2 imes10$^-15$ erg cm$^-2$ s$^-1$ in the 0.3-8 keVenergy range. In view of the intermediate latitude of our field (bsime10deg), it comes as no surprise that the log N-log S distribution ofour serendipitous sources is different from those measured either in theGalactic Plane or at high galactic latitudes. Here we concentrate onanalyzing of the brightest sources in our sample, which unveiled apreviously unknown Seyfert-2 galaxy.
