  • Two nearby clusters of galaxies: A194 (z=0.018) and A1060 (z=0.0114) have been analyzed for their X-ray point source properties with XMM-Newton EPIC-PN data. A multi-band source detection technique was applied to both of the clusters, resulting in 46 sources from the A194 field and 32 sources from the A1060 field, respectively. The cumulative log(N)-log(S) for a flux limit of Fx~10E-14 ergs cm-2 s-1 is calculated and compared with that of the Lockman Hole. A ~3 sigma excess of X-ray sources is… CONTINUE READING
