• 90% completeness limit :  3 x 10-15 erg/s/cm2

The FornaX survey within the existing/on-going X-ray survey landscape


The maps show the 10 deg2 Fornax field. Each circle stands for an XMM observation. The colour coding indicates the XMM exposure time in seconds. Left: existing observations. Right: planned exposure after completion of the XMM Heritage programme.
