First microlensing candidates from the MEGA survey of M31
We present the first M 31 candidate microlensing events from the Microlensing Exploration of the Galaxy and Andromeda (MEGA) survey. MEGA uses several telescopes to detect microlensing towards the nearby Andromeda galaxy, M 31, in order to establish whether massive compact objects are a significant contribution to the mass budget of the dark halo of M 31. The results presented here are based on observations with the Isaac Newton Telescope on La Palma, during the 1999/00 and 2000/01 observing...[Show more]
