J/PASJ/59/559       SiO maser search off the Galactic plane  (Deguchi+, 2007)

An SiO maser search off the galactic plane. Deguchi S., Fujii T., Ita Y., Imai H., Izumiura H., Kameya O., Matsunaga N., Miyazaki A., Mizutani A., Nakada Y., Nakashima J.-I., Winnberg A. <Publ. Astron. Soc. Jap., 59, 559-587 (2007)> =2007PASJ...59..559D

Among the new detections, two are very faint objects with MSX 12µm flux densities below 2Jy. These are likely to be O-rich AGB-stars associated with dwarf-galaxy tidal tails. The sample also includes medium bright MSX objects at moderately high galactic latitudes (3°<|b|<5°) and in the IRAS gap at higher latitudes. A signature of a warp of the inner Galactic disk is found for a disk subsample. This warp appears relatively strongly in the area of 0°<l<45° and 3°<|b|<5°. We also found a group of stars that does not follow to the Galactic rotation. This feature appears in the Galactic disk at l∼27°, and extends more than 15° in the galactic latitude, like a stream of tidal debris from a dwarf galaxy. Description: Simultaneous observations in the SiO J=1-0, v=1 and 2 transitions at 42.122 and 42.821GHz respectively were made with the 45-m radio telescope at Nobeyama, mainly during the winter-spring seasons between 2003-2006; in addition, a few unpublished results from 1999 and 2000 were included in this work.

Note (1): Blend flag. Three character flag, one character per band [JHK], that indicates the number of components that were fit simultaneously when estimating the brightness of a source: 0 = Source is not detected, or is inconsistently deblended in that band. 1 = One component was fit to the source in R2 profile-fitting photometry (Rflg="2"), or default magnitudes are from aperture photometry (Rflg="1" or "4") or saturated star 1-d radial profile-fitting (Rflg="3"). >1 = More than one component was fit simultaneously during R2 profile-fit photometry, where the value of the field is the number of components simultaneously fit. The maximum number of components is 7 in any band for the PSC, so this Bflg is always a three character flag. Multi-component fitting occurs only for profile-fitting, and only when more than one detection is found within ∼5". Single detections that are not well-fit by a single PSF are not split.
