Various redshifts have been reported for this blazar in the literature.
We are quoting the most recent measurement, z = 0.340, of Shaw et al.
in the main TeVCat table.
Details of the various measurements:
z = 0.341
- Scarpa et al.
(1999) quote a redshift of z = 0.341 with a reference
to "E. S. Perlmann 1998, private communication". Further details are
given of this private communication: "Recently, a redshift of z =
0.314 has been reported, based on detection of Ca II H and K and Mg II
z = 0.416
- Landt et al.
(2002) report a redshift of z = 0.416 and state
"We obtained this redshift, which is different from the one published
by Perlman et al.
(1996), after a careful reinspection of the
electronic spectral file". There does not seem to be a redshift quoted
in Perlman et al.
(1996) but perhaps the private communication with
Perlman that is cited for z = 0.342 refers to an analysis of the
1ES 0502+675 spectrum presented in this Perlman et al.
which shows four absorption lines.
z = 0.340
- Shaw et al.
(2013) report a redshift of z = 0.340
from spectroscopic observations with the Marcario Low Resolution
Spectrograph on the Hobby-Eberly Telescope.
