A catalogue of soft X-ray sources in the Galactic Center region.


Abstract (from CDS):

We present a catalogue of 107 point-like X-ray sources derived from a systematic analysis of all the ROSAT PSPC observations of the galactic center region performed in 1992-1993. Besides SgrA*, the massive black hole at the galactic center, 41 X-ray sources have been positionally associated with already classified objects. Twenty are identified with foreground stars and five with known Low Mass X-ray Binaries. The majority of the sources in our catalogue still remains unidentified. They are hard and/or severely absorbed and probably represent a large population of X-ray binaries located in the galactic center region, accreting at low accretion rates, and still largely unknown.
