We present the results of further analysis of the data obtained from a high spectral resolution observation of the low energy (60 - 1000 eV) diffuse X-ray background at high galactic latitude from a March 1999 sounding rocket flight. Joint spectral fits to this data set and ROSAT and Wisconsin sounding rocket data from the same region of the sky are presented. The DXS data set is also used, and a comparison to predictions of Local Bubble emission by Smith and Cox is made. In conjunction with published Chandra and XMM data, constraints are also inferred on the emission from beyond the Local Bubble, such as from the Galactic halo, the Local Group or hot intergalactic medium. This work was supported in part by NASA grant NAG5-679.
