Abstract

We have observed M15 with EUVE, in an attempt to detect AC211, the well know globular cluster Low Mass X-ray Binary (LMXB). Our observations are part of an attempt to characterize the EUVE properties of LMXBs by looking at those towards which the extinction is extremely low (as it is for M15): these observations are impossible for the vast majority of Galactic LMXBs. EUVE successfully detected this cluster, at a countrate of 0.002 counts s−1. In this paper we discuss the association of this source with AC211, and alternative scenarios for EUVE emission from M15.
