In this paper we present the Chandra X-ray sources detected in the Cetus field, along with an analysis of X-ray source counts, stacked X-ray spectrum, and optical identifications. A total of 188 X-ray sources were detected: 174 in the 0.5-7.0keV band, 154 in the 0.5-2.0keV band, and 113 in the 2.0-7.0keV band. The X-ray source counts were derived and compared with LALA field (172ks exposure). Description: A total of 176ks of Chandra ACIS exposure on the LALA Cetus field was obtained in very faint (VFAINT) mode, composed of two individual observations. The first observation, with 160.4ks exposure, was taken on UT 2002 June 13-14 (Chandra ObsID 4129). The second observation, with 15.4ks exposure, was taken 1 day later (UT 2002 June 15, ObsID 4402).

Note (1): Whenever available, source coordinates derived in the soft-band image, which has the best spatial resolution among the three bands, are presented. For sources not detected in the soft band, total (with a higher priority) or hard-band positions are used as substitutions. Note (2): Multiple letters are used for sources detected in more than one band, where bands are: T = source detected in total band S = source detected in soft band H = source detected in hard band Note (3): Here we calculate the hardness ratios with a Bayesian approach which models the detected counts as a Poisson distribution and can give reliable error bars for both low and high count sources. Note (4): Galactic-absorption-corrected, NH=2.2x1020cm-2. In 10-15erg/cm2/s = 10-18W/m2 Note (5): Kron-like elliptical aperture magnitudes, Bertin & Arnouts (1996A&AS..117..393B). For sources which are not detected in r' band, 5σ upper limits of the magnitudes are given when available. Note (6): Notes as follows: b = Sources with the searching circles seriously overlapped by nearby bright sources and no optical counterparts can be visually identified. Reliable upper limits on their r'-band magnitudes are thus not available c = Sources with optical counterparts visually identified. SExtractor failed to detect these counterparts due to dilution of nearby bright sources. For these counterparts, their r'-band magnitudes are measured within a 1.5" radius circle. d = Two Sources which are not covered by the MMT r'-band image e = Sources with two counterparts identified within the searching circles. Here we only present the one which is closer to the center of the circles
