Abstract content

The extreme synchrotron BL Lac object PKS 0548-322 has been observed with the High Energy Stereoscopic System (H.E.S.S) array of atmospheric-Cherenkov telescopes. The observations were performed between October 2004 and December 2006 for a total exposure of nearly 25 hours live-time. We will report the HESS detection and present a spectral energy distribution of this object using a quasi-simultaneous X-ray spectrum from archival data. It will be used to estimate some general constraints on source parameters.
