II/56        100-Micron Survey of the Galactic Plane         (Hoffmann+ 1971)

The 100-Micron Survey of the Galactic Plane Hoffmann W.F., Frederick C.L., Emery R.J. <Astrophys. J. 170, L89 (1971)> =1971ApJ...170L..89H
ADC_Keywords: Photometry, infrared; Surveys; Galactic plane; Infrared sources Description: The catalog represents a survey of a portion of the galactic plane at a wavelength of 100 micrometers with a balloon-borne, stabilized, 12-inch infrared telescope having a sensitivity of 10(-22) W/m2/Hz. The survey covers 750 square degrees of the sky, including most of the galactic plane between galactic longitudes of 335 and 88 degrees, plus a number of other selected areas of interest. Seventy-two sources have been detected, 60 of which are identified with continuum radio sources, bright nebulae, dark nebulae, and infrared stars. The catalog includes right ascension and declination (B1950.0), galactic coordinates, 100-micrometer peak flux densities, sizes of sources, and identifications. File Summary:

Note (1): This is the ratio of the correlation of the signal with a function representing the beam profile to the rms noise level of the correlation. Note (2): Value of source size is given when the signal-to-noise is sufficient to clearly distinguish the shape of the signal from that of a point source. Note (3): the symbols are: B = Bright Nebulae D = Dark Nebulae I = Radio Combination Lines L = Radio Recombination Lines M = Molecular Lines R = Radio Continuum
