Galactic Plane Simulation

This image shows a simulated sky map showing the inner region (-90° < l < 90°) of the galactic plane that will be obtained during the CTA galactic plane survey. The image shows expected populations of galactic supernova remnants and pulsar wind nebulae as well as diffuse emission that will be detected during the 1,600 hours of observing time planned for the survey.
