J/ApJ/626/272          Cep A X-Ray sources                       (Pravdo+, 2005)

X-rays from Cepheus A East and West. Pravdo S.H., Tsuboi Y. <Astrophys. J., 626, 272-282 (2005)> =2005ApJ...626..272P
ADC_Keywords: X-ray sources ; Photometry, photographic ; Photometry, infrared Keywords: ISM: Herbig-Haro objects - X-rays: ISM Abstract: We report the discovery of X-rays from both components of Cepheus A, East and West, with the XMM-Newton observatory. HH 168 joins the ranks of other energetic Herbig-Haro objects that are sources of T≥106K X-ray emission. We detect 102 X-ray sources, many presumed to be premain-sequence stars on the basis of the reddening of their optical and IR counterparts. Description: We observed Cep A with the EPIC cameras of the XMM-Newton observatory on 2003 August 23 for 43.9ks. File Summary:
