6.5 The XMM-Newton Serendipitous Source Catalogue

With all the sources serendipitously detected in the EPIC field of view of XMM-Newton public observations, the SSC compiles and regularly updates the XMM-Newton EPIC source catalogue (see Appendix A.3). Specific queries on the catalogue can be made using the XMM-Newton Science Archive. The full catalogue can be downloaded from the XSA web page (https://www.cosmos.esa.int/web/xmm-newton/xsa#download).
