Eclipsing binary system in Orion

The RXJ 0529.4+0041 system at mid-secondary eclipse. The object RXJ 0529.4+0041 was first discovered by the X-ray satellite ROSAT. Subsequent optical spectroscopy showed this object to be a young, low-mass spectroscopic binary system. And when a team of astronomers used a 91-cm telescope at the Serra La Nave observing station on the slope of the Etna volcano (Sicily) to monitor the light curve, they also discovered that this system undergoes eclipses.


This is one of the six individual frames from the ADONIS movie of the RXJ 0529.4+0041 eclipsing, binary stellar system, corresponding to the time around the "secondary" eclipse.
