Abstract (from CDS):

We report on the discovery of the first z>4 QSO in the ROSAT All Sky Survey (RASS) near the X-ray source RX J1028.6-0844. From the Lyα emission line found in an optical spectrum we measured z=4.276±0.005. This is so far the hightest redshift for a QSO in the RASS. The RASS X-ray count rate of 0.035ct/s leads to an X-ray flux of fx=8.3310–13erg/s/cm and a luminosity of Lx≃6x1046erg/s in the 2-10keV rest frame energy band of the QSO if galactic column density of neutral hydrogen and a photon index {GAMMA}=-2 is assumed. The spectral energy distribution as inferred from the observed hardness ratios indicates the presence of considerable intrinsic absorption in the QSO around 2-2.5keV.
