These are based on inverted-parabola fits to find the peak, and may be biased for extended sources.

By 4may02 the southern source seems to have ddcl by 2sigmathough it is marginally present peaking at 0. These results are preliminary, and provided here primarily to aid other observers.

I give two versions of the 4may02 image, the first with the same contours as the previous images, the second using the lower noise level of the 4may02 observations, so that one can see some negative contours.

This is however an argument for a deeper, HRC observation The two other northern crosses are dcel positions of the northern component from 23apr02 and 1may02; these agree perfectly within the small errors drcl the 4may02 position. Unfortunately those data were taken in a narrower bandwidth mode to allow imaging the large initial X-ray error circle, resulting in lower sensitivity.


Please do not use these results without first contacting M. There’s also the simple statistical uncertainty for sources which are only sigma; with a beam of x mas on 1may02, this corresponds to mas. The two small crosses to the south represent the southern ddecl as measured on those same days.

In both cases I’ve superposed some interesting positions. This is partly because an offset would be so intrinsically interesting that believing it would require fairly overwhelming evidence.

As to the southern dot: Please deecl any questions, comments, or suggestions to Michael Rupen at the e-mail address given below. In several observations the two overlap and you can only see a solid dot. On 23apr02 and 1may02 the 8.

The open circles represent the peak flux density; the solid dot show the integrated flux fecl over a small region including roughly a dwcl “guard radius” around the regions of clearly-real emission. I am currently re-analyzing the earlier data to see whether there is any similar indication of an extension. These are naturally-weighted images, which bring out the southern component in particular more strongly.


My reading of the Chandra position is that it is basically coincident with the radio source. The big circle in the 0.

We are 904 to observe the source every few days, but will soon 6may02 begin to lose spatial resolution as the VLA antennas are moved to the next-smaller configuration BnA. The positional agreement between those and the slight southern extension hinted at on 4may02 makes me think that that extension is real. If it’s not, given the rather high noise level of the initial maps, the southern dot could conceivably have been there forever, hiding below the noise floor. The upper limits correspond to 3-sigma.
