Subject: Trigger for proposal 06930201
I hope this is the correct email to send trigger requests to.
Unfortunately, I am only with very limited Internet access and could not
The newly discovered black hole candidate Swift J174510.8-262411 (e.g.,
ATELs 4380, 4381, 4383, 4385, and 4388, 4393) has been at 1 Crab in
20-40keV according to an INTEGRAL pointing yesterday. The source easily
meets the criteria for my approved XMM proposal 69302. I would therefore
like to trigger the first of these 23ksec observations.
Since the source is so very bright, as already discussed with Norbert by
email yesterday I would like to request the use of the burst mode since
even the modified timing mode would be piled up and at this brightness
the burst mode is sufficient for the study of the iron line. The offset
map ought to be done as a closed observation.
The source is located at
RA =17h 44m 10.6 s
Dec=-26d 24' 14.7''
In case of further questions, unfortunately I have very bad internet
access right now, but will be back with normal access tomorrow
(Thursday) morning. In case there is a very urgent question, please
contact either Jerome Rodriguez or Mike Nowak (both in cc:).
