A finding chart for TW Pic

SkyView image of TW Pic (see important notes).

  • Equatorial: 05h34m50.56s, -58d01m40.7s (Gaia)
  • Galactic: l=266.42, b=-32.78
Finding Chart:
Tuohy et al (1986)
Optical: G=14.2 (Gaia); X-rays: 1.6x10-11 ergs cm-2s-1 (BAT 157m; 14-195 keV), 2.8x10-11 ergs cm-2s-1 (4XMM-DR11)
IP Credential:
** (Possible): Although its X-ray brightness and other characteristics are very IP like, there are uncertainties about the ~6 hr orbital period, and no shorter periods have been detected consistently.
  • Orbital?: 0.2525 d = 6.06 hr = 21816 s, from optical photometry.
    HJD(minimum light) = 2448207.785(14) + 0.2525(12)E
    (Patterson & Moulden 1993).
  • Spin?: 0.08317 d = 119.76 min = 7186 s (?) Doubtful.
    HJD(pluse max)=2448207.678(12) + 0.08317(6)E
    (Patterson & Moulden 1993) which is, however, not seen in the X-rays
422.1 (419.9-424.5) pc (Gaia EDR3; parallax: 2.334+/-0.014 mas)
