Notes. For each spectrum, a two-components (absorbed VAPEC + absorbed power-law, see Sect. 2.3 for details) astrophysical background model was estimated from the background regions shown in Figs. 1 and 4. Only the parameters from the non-thermal components are listed in this table while the parameters of the thermal component are fairly constant from one region to another (kT = 0.14 − 0.17 keV and the NH was fixed to 5 × 1020 cm-2 for all the regions). The unabsorbed non-thermal fluxes of the PWN, PSR and SNR’s rim are given in the 2–10 keV energy range and the NH in units of 1022 cm-2. The area of the extraction region and the annulus radii for the PSR/PWN analysis are also given. The error bars are given at 90% confidence level.
