Notes Swift J1753.5-0127 has remained in a low/hard X-ray state since its outburst in 2005. In June 2015, it reached its lowest flux since its outburst ( Neustroev2015 ). There is a discrepance between the K2,Porb and M1 measured by Neustroev2014 and Shaw2016 . After 11 years in outburst, it started to decay towards its quiescent state around September 2016 ( Russell2016 ). By early November 2016, the source was not detected in X-rays by Swift ( Shaw2016a ).
