Chandra ACIS Imaging of the Galactic Center

Figure:: False-color, 0.5-7 keV image of the Sgr A West region at the Galactic Center made with the ACIS-I instrument on the Chandra X-ray Observatory. The X-ray image has been adaptively smoothed to display the structure of the diffuse emission (green and blue). The image is overlaid with VLA 6-cm contours showing the nuclear radio source Sgr A* and the H II region Sgr A West (F. Yusef-Zadeh, private communication). The red dot at 17h45m40.0', -29o00'28'' (J2000) is the faint X-ray source discovered by Chandra ACIS coincident within 0.''35 of the radio position of Sgr A*. X-ray emission coincident with IRS 13 (yellow) is evident just southwest of Sgr A* (see Article by F. Baganoff).
