AbstractOptical and X-ray observations are presented here of a newly reported X-ray transient system in the Small Magellanic Cloud - SXP7.92. A detailed analysis of the X-ray data reveal a coherent period of 7.9s. A search through earlier X-ray observations of the SMC reveal a previously unknown earlier detection of this system. Follow-up X-ray observations identified a new transient source within the error circle of the previous observations. An optical counterpart, AzV285, is proposed which reveals clear evidence for a 36.8d binary period.
