Images of the region around the BeXRB SXP 1062. Left: continuum-subtracted MCELS images. Red, green, and blue correspond to Hα, [O iii] and [S ii]. The cross marks the centre of the white circle (RA = 01h27m4415, Dec =  −73°33′016, J2000), which indicates the estimated size of the SNR in all images. The Be star counterpart of SXP 1062 is visible close to the cross. Middle: MOST 36 cm radio image, logarithmically scaled from 0.5 to 3 mJy. Right: combined, instrument background-subtracted EPIC-pn and MOS colour image obtained from the XMM-Newton observations. Red, green, and blue denote X-ray intensities in the 0.2 − 1.0, 1.0 − 2.0, and 2.0 − 4.5 keV bands. The images from the individual bands were adaptively smoothed with a Gaussian σ of 4′′ (at high intensities) to 20′′ (low intensities). Circles indicate the extraction regions for the X-ray spectra: Source region for SXP 1062 (A, 29′′ radius) and associated background (B, 25′′). For the SNR spectrum (C, 84.5′′), regions D (40′′), E (11′′), and F (14′′) were excluded and region G (60′′) was used to estimate the background. Regions E and F were excluded because they contain possible point sources in the direction of the SNR as found in source detection runs on the EPIC images.
