Sk 183 is the visually brightest star in the N90 nebula, a young star-forming region in the Wing of the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC). We present new optical spectroscopy from the Very Large Telescope which reveals Sk 183 to be one of the most massive O-type stars in the SMC. Classified as an O3-type dwarf on the basis of its nitrogen spectrum, the star also displays broadened He i absorption, which suggests a later type. We propose that Sk 183 has a composite spectrum and that it is similar to… 
A dearth of young and bright massive stars in the Small Magellanic Cloud
Context. Massive star evolution at low metallicity is closely connected to many fields in high-redshift astrophysics, but is poorly understood so far. Because of its metallicity of ∼0.2 Z⊙, its
2dF-AAOmega spectroscopy of massive stars in the Magellanic Clouds: The north-eastern region of the Large Magellanic Cloud
We present spectral classifications from optical spectroscopy of 263 massive stars in the north-eastern region of the Large Magellanic Cloud. The observed two-degree field includes the massive 30
Testing massive star evolution, star-formation history, and feedback at low metallicity
Context. The supergiant ionized shell SMC-SGS 1 (DEM 167), which is located in the outer Wing of the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC), resembles structures that originate from an energetic star-formation
Massive binary stars and the kinematics of Young Massive Clusters
Located in the Large Magellanic Cloud, R136 is a rare example of a nearby young and dense massive star cluster in which individual stars can be resolved. Often suggested as a globular cluster in
Photometric Determination of the Mass Accretion Rates of Pre-main-sequence Stars. V. Recent Star Formation in the 30 Dor Nebula

The donor star of the X-ray pulsar X1908+075
High-mass X-ray binaries (HMXBs) consist of a massive donor star and a compact object. While several of those systems have been well studied in X-rays, little is known for most of the donor stars as
The VLT-FLAMES Tarantula Survey - XXVI. Properties of the O-dwarf population in 30 Doradus
Context. The VLT-FLAMES Tarantula Survey has observed hundreds of O-type stars in the 30 Doradus region of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). Aims. We study the properties of a statistically
Potsdam Wolf-Rayet model atmosphere grids for WN stars
We present new grids of Potsdam Wolf-Rayet (PoWR) model atmospheres for Wolf-Rayet stars of the nitrogen sequence (WN stars). The models have been calculated with the latest version of the PoWR
The slow X-ray pulsar SXP 1062 and associated supernova remnant in the Wing of the Small Magellanic Cloud
Abstract SXP 1062 is an exceptional case of a young neutron star in a wind-fed high-mass X-ray binary associated with a supernova remnant. A unique combination of measured spin period, its
