We have obtained UKIRT infrared observations of the field of the bright Galactic Z source GX 5–1. From an astrometric plate solution tied to Tycho-ACT standards we have obtained accurate positions for the stars in our field which, combined with an accurate radio position, have allowed us to identify the probable infrared counterpart of GX 5–1. Narrow–band… CONTINUE READING
