AstroSat detection of two Type-I X-ray bursts from the accreting neutron star XTE J1739-285
XTE J1739-285 is a transient neutron star low mass X-ray binary that was discovered with RXTE in 1999 (IAUC 7300). This source was suggested to harbor the fastest spinning neutron star based on the measurement of burst oscillation frequency (Kaaret et. al. 2007, ApJL 657, 2, L97-L100).
