Fig. 5.


Images of a NS rotating at 700 Hz. The mass and the radius of a non-rotating NS of the same baryonic mass are M = 1.5 M and R = 14 km. The white curves and the colours show the contours of constant bolometric intensity. Upper panels: blackbody case of local isotropic intensity. Lower panels: electron-scattering dominated atmosphere. Panels from the left to the right correspond to the inclinations i = 0°, 45°, and 90°. The lines of constant latitudes (every 10°) and longitudes (every 15°) are shown in black. The colour scheme is different for the two rows.
