J/A+A/309/116       10 globular cluster ROSAT observations (Johnston+, 1996)

ROSAT observations of ten globular clusters with large core radii Johnston H.M., Verbunt F., Hasinger G. <Astron. Astrophys. 309, 116 (1996)> =1996A&A...309..116J
ADC_Keywords: Clusters, globular ; X-ray sources Mission_Name: ROSAT Keywords: globular clusters: general - X-rays: stars Description: We present X-ray observations of ten globular clusters observed with the ROSAT PSPC. The clusters were chosen to have large core radii and to be nearby. Three clusters contain X-ray sources which are probably associated with the cluster. One is the previously discovered X-ray transient H1825-331 in NGC 6652. The other two, in NGC 6366 and NGC 6809, are new members of the class of low-luminosity sources, with luminosities in the region of 1032erg/s. Upper limits can be placed on the source temperatures of both sources, making them similar to sources found in other globular clusters by ROSAT. File Summary:

Note (1): "C" represents the upper limit to the number of counts at the cluster core, for clusters where no source was detected in the core. Note (2): Counts <0 indicate an upper limit Note (3): A source was taken to be a counterpart when the difference in position was less than about 15 arcsec.
