A finding chart for V603 Aql

SkyView image of V603 Aql (see important notes).

  • Equatorial: 18h48m54.65s, +00d35m02.7s (Gaia)
  • Galactic: l=33.16, b=+0.83
Finding Chart:
Optical: G=11.9 (Gaia); X-rays: 8.7x10-12 ergs cm-2s-1 (BAT 157m; 14-195 keV), 1.8x10-11 ergs cm-2s-1 (2SXPS)
IP Credential:
* (Doubtful): This is a cautionary example that, if you look at a bright variable hard enough, you'll find a peak in the periodgram that sticks out, and can even find spurious polarimetric periods. Later data show that claims of spin period detection in V603 Aql have no credibility.
  • Orbital: 0.138201 d = 3.3125 hr = 11925 s, from optical spectroscopy.
  • Spin:
  • Others:
315.4 (311.9-318.4) pc (Gaia EDR3; parallax: 3.106+/-0.034 mas)
