  • Spectroscopic observations of the fast X-ray transient and superluminal jet source SAX J1819.3-2525 (V4641 Sgr) reveal a best-fitting period of Pspect = 2.81678 ± 0.00056 days and a semiamplitude of K2 = 211.0 ± 3.1 km s-1. The optical mass function is f(M) = 2.74 ± 0.12 M☉. We find a photometric period of Pphoto = 2.81730 ± 0.00001 days using a light curve measured from photographic plates. The folded light curve resembles an ellipsoidal light curve with two maxima of roughly equal height and… CONTINUE READING
