We use archival data from XMM-Newton, Chandra, NuSTAR, and Hubble Space Telescope (HST) observations. Total X-ray data were analysed to find that the model parameters of the system are indicative of a stellar-mass black hole, similar to 10 M-circle dot, as the central compact object. Furthermore, analyses of the optical data from HST reveal two optical candidates at 90 per cent ...
