EXOGPS - EXOSAT/ME Galactic Plane Survey



This catalog is based on information contained in Warwick et al (1988), MNRAS, 232, 551.

The distribution of 2-6 keV x-ray emission in the galactic plane in the first and fourth galactic quadrants has been measured in a series of scanning observations with the medium-energy progportional counters on EXOSAT. The results are presented as contour maps and in the form of a catalogue of 70 discrete sources.

Additional references can be found under the reference parameter. Additional information can be obtained upon request from the HEASARC.
