Map of Galactic Plane - original method
January 8, 2013
This image is a map of a region near the Galactic Plane, acquired with IBIS/ISGRI on board INTEGRAL, and covering the the 17-60 keV energy band. The total exposure is of about 20 million seconds in the region of the Galactic Centre, the central area of the map. The image shows the results achieved by using a previous sky reconstruction method. For comparison, the version of this map created using the improved, newly developed algorithm for image analysis is available from the right-hand menu under "related images".
