Chandra Surveys the Galactic Center

Figure:: Chandra ``true color'' X-ray mosaic of the central 2 * 0.8 square degree band of the GC region. The three energy bands are 1-3 keV (shown in red), 3-5 keV (green), and 5-8 keV (blue). The spatial resolution ranges from 0.5" on-axis to 5" at the near edge of the CCD and to 10" at the diagonal edge. This image is adaptively smoothed with a signal-to-noise ratio of 3 and is plotted logarithmically to emphasize low surface brightness emission. The saw-shaped boundaries of the map, plotted in Galactic coordinates, results from a specific roll angle of the observations. (see Article by C. Lang).
