VLT optical observations of V821 Ara(= GX 339-4) in an extended ``off'' state.

SHAHBAZ T., FENDER R. and CHARLES P.A.

Abstract (from CDS):

We report on low-resolution spectroscopy of GX 339-4 during its current, extended X-ray ``off'' state in May 2000 (r=20.1) obtained with the VLT Focal Reducer/low dispersion Spectrograph (FORS1). Although we do not positively detect the secondary star in GX 339-4 we place an upper limit of 30 percent on the contribution of a ``normal'' K-type secondary star spectrum to the observed flux. Using this limit for the observed magnitude of the secondary star, we find a lower limit for the distance of GX 339-4 to be 5.6 kpc.
