We discuss the results of two XMM-Newton observations of the open cluster NGC 6604 obtained in April and September 2002. We concentrate mainly on the multiple system HD 167971 (O5-8V + O5-8V + (O8I)). The soft part of the EPIC spectrum of this system is thermal with typical temperatures of about 2 × 10 6 to 9 × 10 6 K. The nature (thermal vs. non-thermal) of the hard part of the spectrum is not unambiguously revealed by our data. If the emission is thermal, the high temperature of the plasma… Expand
XMM-Newton observations of the massive colliding wind binary and non-thermal radio emitter Cyg OB2#8A [O6If+O5.5III(f)]
We report on the results of four XMM‐Newton observations separated by about ten days from each other of Cyg OB2 #8A [O6If + O5.5III(f)]. This massive colliding wind binary is a very bright X-rayExpand
Non-thermal radio emission from O-type stars II. HD 167971
HD 167971 is a triple system consisting of a 3.3-day eclipsing binary (O5‐8 V + O5‐8 V) and an O8 supergiant. It is also a well known non-thermal radio emitter. We observed the radio emission of HDExpand
