   CXOGCS (Chandra X-ray Observatory, Galactic Center Survey)= (CXGCS) Write:<<CXOGCS JHHMMSS.s+DDMMSS>>
<<CXOGCS JHHMMSS.ss+DDMMSS.s>> N: about 1000 Object:(X)  (SIMBAD class: X = X-ray source) Note:This first large-scale Chandra survey of the Galactic Center region consists of 30 spatially-overlapped observations with exposure of about 11 ksec each.
All these observations were taken in July, 2001. The arc-second spatial resolution and sensitivity of this survey is more detailed and complete by nearly two orders of magnitude than previous imaging in the 1-10 keV range. The survey allows, for the first time, a clean separation of the diffuse and point-like components of the X-ray emission, leading to a comprehensive characterization of high-energy activities in the region.
We have detected about 1000 X-ray sources, compared to about two dozen previously known. See also [WDL2006]. in source:NAME Gal Center Ref:=2006MNRAS.371...38W byWANG Q.D. , DONG H., LANG C. Mon.
