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.
