Abstract

We present the first results from a Chandra survey of the central region of the Small Magellanic Cloud. We detect a total of 122 sources down to a limiting luminosity of ̃ 4.3 × 1033erg s-1, including 4 pulsars, 5 SNRs and two new transient sources. We also identify 18 more transient candidates based on comparison with ROSAT and ASCA surveys.
