We have attempted to constrain the physical properties of the binary by collecting new optical and X-ray observations. The optical light curves obtained with narrow-band continuum and line-bearing filters are analysed and compared. Optical spectra are used to map the location of the He II 4686 and H-alpha line-emission regions in velocity space. New XMM-Newton as well as archive X-ray spectra are analysed to search for variability and constrain the properties of the hot plasma in this system. Description: Photometric time series in different narrow-band filters are given for the eclipsing binary systems Cyg OB2 #5 = V729 Cyg = BD+40 4220. The data were obtained with the CCD camera at the 1.2m telescope at the Observatoire de Haute Provence.
