[vsolj-alert 20] Outburst of RX J0757.0+6306

Outburst of RX J0757.0+6306

RX J0757.0+6306 のアウトバースト

 伊藤 弘さん(東京)の報告によれば、ROSAT衛星の発見した激変星で、軌道周期
 が非常に短いことから、WZ Sge型矮新星(アウトバーストのきわめてまれなSU UMa
 型矮新星)の可能性が指摘されていた RX J0757.0+6306 がアウトバーストしてい

Outburst of RX J0757.0+6306

   H. Itoh (Tokyo, Japan) communicates that the cataclysmic variable
(possible SU UMa-type or DQ Her-type) RX J0757.0+6306 is undergoing an
outburst.  Recent observations:

> From: Taichi Kato <tkato@kusastro.kyoto-u.ac.jp>
> Subject: [vsnet-chat 662] RX J0757.0+6306
>   According to "Astronomical Time Series" (ed Maoz et al. 1997, Kluwer
> Academic Press) p.195, Tovmassian et al. identified the ROSAT source
> RX J0757.0+6306 (=1RXS J075700.5+630602) as a new, ultrashort-period
> cataclysmic variable.  The orbital period is 75+/-1.4 min.  The optical
> spectrum shows strong hydrogen emission lines, resembling that of WZ Sge.
> Tovmassian et al. discussed in this paper the possibility of a DQ Her type.
> This star may be worth monitoring for possible future outbursts.
>   The paper did not mention the accurate coordinates, but watching at
> the ROSAT position (07h 57m 00s.5, +63o 06' 02" 2000.0) might be sufficient.

> Dear VSNET fans,
> I'm readily support Taichi's call for monitoring 
> RX J0757+6306. Indeed this system has all chances to
> turn into another WZ Sge system or proof to be 
> the shortest period Intermediate Polar.
> Briefly what we know about this system:
> a. It is X-ray source, not much known about spectra or variability in X-rays.
> b. Optical Spectroscopy indicates CV nature with prominent accretion disk 
> 	and hot spot.
> c. Period derived from the S-wave radial velocity variations is
> 	most probably 81 minutes (+/- 5 min are not excluded).
> d. The limitted photometry shows no eclipsing, high amplitude flickering
> 	light curves. On 4 ocassions out of 5, significant signal was recorded
> 	at frequency corresponding to 8.5 min  oscillations.
> e. No outburst history is available at the moment.
> The POSS measurments of coordinates and magnitude are as follows:
> RA 07h57m01.3s  DEC +63d06m01s   2000.0   16.06 (red)
> The identification chart is posted to VSNET separately.
> The system was reported by Tovmassian et al. in  Proceedings of 
> Symp. dedicated to 25th aniversary of Wise observatory
> "Astronomical Time Series" (ed Maoz et al. 1997, Kluwer Academic 
> Press) p.195
> and 13th NorthAmerican Workshop on Cataclysmic Variables,
> in press.

   Confirmation is most urgently requested; follow-up high-speed photometry
is also urgently requested.
