Referred to by ATel #: 388

INTEGRAL performed a TOO observation of the outburst of the pulsar V0332+53 (ATEL #381, #372, #371, #349) from 2005 January 6 to 10. About 110 ksec of good data were obtained.
During the observation, the source was still very bright with a mean flux of ~650 mCrab in the 20-60 keV band. The multi-instrument spectrum of very high signal to noise confirms the presence of three cyclotron lines at energies of ~25, ~55 and ~75 keV, and of a complex continuum.
The near real time data of that TOO observation will become immediately public. Quick-look analysis results and a set of tar files containing preliminary data (and auxiliary files) are available at http://isdc.unige.ch/?Science+news
As part of the observation was affected by operational problems the consolidated data from that observation will be available through the ISDC archive in about two months.
