Map of the Galactic Bulge region accumulated over seven years 2003-2010. This map is mosaic image of the individual sky observations performed with IBIS/ISGRI in the 17-60 keV energy band. To reduce systematic noise arised in the dense region of Galactic Center (GC), we skipped all pointings situated in the 3-degrees vicinity around GC. The map is interactive, click on the source position to see its light curve over seven years.|
Use link below the image to overlap stellar density field. The green contours are isophotes of the 4.9 micron surface brightness of the Galaxy (COBE/DIRBE) revealing the bulge/disk structure of the inner Galaxy. The near-infrared brightness of the galaxy traces also the hard X-ray ridge emission.
