First Results from a XMM-Newton Survey of a Distance-Limited (D < 22 Mpc) Sample of Seyfert Galaxies. II - The Galactic Serendipitous Sources
We present preliminary results from a study with XMM-Newton of the galactic serendipitous sources in a sample of 28 nearby Seyfert galaxies (with D < 22 Mpc). We concentrate here on a subset of four galaxies, namely: NGC3185, NGC3486, NGC3941, and NGC4565. In these galaxies we found six ultraluminous X-ray source (ULX). The large collecting area of XMM-Newton makes the statistics sufficient to perform spectral fitting with simple models. We shortly discuss the results obtained so far.
