Spectral type


MAXI J1543-564: Rau2011a reported 3 possible objects (A, B and C) close or within the radio ( Miller-Jones2011b ) and X-ray ( Kennea2011a ) error circles.
Lopez2019 resolved the star B into B1 and B2 which magnitudes are reported in the quiescence magnitude section.
The ourburst magnitude reported by Rau2011a probably refers to B1+B2.
