A finding chart for V1062 Tau

SkyView image of V1062 Tau (see important notes).

  • Equatorial: 05h02m27.47s, +24d45m23.1s (Gaia)
  • Galactic: l=178.08, b=-10.31
Finding Chart:
Remillard et al (1994).
Optical: G=16.1 (Gaia); X-rays: 2.5x10-11 ergs cm-2s-1 (BAT 157m; 14-195 keV), 2.6x10-11 ergs cm-2s-1 (2SXPS)
IP Credential:
***** (Ironclad) The spin period is confirmed in multiple X-ray observations and in optical photometry, and the orbital period determined using optical spectroscopy.
  • Orbital: 0.415883 d = 9.98119 hr = 35932.3 s, from optical spectrlscopy.
    T0 = HJD 2453617.988(6) + 0.415883(13)
    (Thorstensen et al. (2010)) for the absorption radial velocities.
  • Spin: 0.044 d = 63 min = 3800 s, from optical and X-ray photometry.
  • Others:
1222 (1151-1310) pc (Gaia EDR3; parallax: 0.792+/-0.049 mas)
