The observations, having an HPBW of 24" (0.4pc), reveal 95 clumps, of which about 50% have MSX associations and only 20% have IRAS associations. Owing to their higher sensitivity to colder dust and higher angular resolution the present observations identify new emission features and also show that most of the IRAS sources in this region consist of multiple dust emission peaks. The detected millimeter sources (MMS) include on one end the exotic MMS5 (associated with IRAS 16183-4958, one of the brightest infrared sources in our Galaxy) and the bright (and presumably cold) source MMS54, with no IRAS or MSX associations on the other end. Around 10% of the sources are associated with signposts of high mass star formation activity. Description: The 1.2mm continuum observations were carried out with the 37 channel bolometer array SIMBA (SEST Imaging Bolometer Array) at the SEST (Swedish-ESO Submillimeter Telescope) on La Silla, Chile during the night from July 4 to 5, 2002.
