Abstract (from CDS):

We present the results of a Chandra ACIS-I survey of a high-latitude region at 13 h +38° which was earlier observed with ROSAT and which has recently been observed by XMM-Newton for 200 ks. XMM-Newton will provide good-quality X-ray spectra for over 200 sources with fluxes around the knee of the log N/ log S, which are responsible for the bulk of the X-ray background. The main aim of the Chandra observations is to provide arcsecond, or better, positions, and hence reliable identifications, for the XMM-Newton sources. The ACIS-I observations were arranged in a mosaic of four 30-ks pointings, covering almost all of the 15-arcmin radius XMM-Newton/ROSAT field. We detect 214 Chandra sources above a Cash likelihood statistic of 25, which approximates to 5σ significance, to a limiting flux of ∼1.3x10–15 erg/cm2/s (0.5-7 keV). Optical counterparts are derived from a Subaru SuprimeCam image reaching to R ∼ 27. The very large majority of the Chandra sources have an optical counterpart, with the distribution peaking at 23 < R < 24, although 14 have no counterpart to R = 27. The fraction of X-ray sources with no identification brighter than R = 27 is similar to that found in deeper Chandra surveys.

The majority of the identifications are with galaxies. As found in other Chandra surveys, there is a very wide range of optical magnitudes for a given X-ray flux, implying a range of emission mechanisms, and many sources have high LX/Loptratios, implying absorption at moderate redshift. Comparison with the earlier ROSAT survey shows that the accuracy of the ROSAT positions agrees very well with the predictions from simulations by Mac Hardy et al. and that the large majority of the identifications were correct.
