Abstract (from CDS):

Our aim is to study the very high energy (VHE; E>100GeV) γ-ray emission from BLLac objects and the evolution in time of their broad-band spectral energy distribution (SED). VHE observations of the high-frequency peaked BLLac object PKS2005-489 were made with the High Energy Stereoscopic System (HESS) from 2004 through 2007. Three simultaneous multi-wavelength campaigns at lower energies were performed during the HESS data taking, consisting of several individual pointings with the XMM-Newton and RXTE satellites. A strong VHE signal, ∼17σ total, from PKS2005-489 was detected during the four years of HESS observations (90.3h live time). The integral flux above the average analysis threshold of 400GeV is ∼3% of the flux observed from the Crab Nebula and varies weakly on time scales from days to years. The average VHE spectrum measured from ∼300GeV to ∼5TeV is characterized by a power law with a photon index, Γ=3.20±0.16stat±0.10syst. At X-ray energies the flux is observed to vary by more than an order of magnitude between 2004 and 2005. Strong changes in the X-ray spectrum (ΔΓX≃0.7) are also observed, which appear to be mirrored in the VHE band. The SED of PKS2005-489, constructed for the first time with contemporaneous data on both humps, shows significant evolution. The large flux variations in the X-ray band, coupled with weak or no variations in the VHE band and a similar spectral behavior, suggest the emergence of a new, separate, harder emission component in September 2005.
