The second epoch Molonglo Galactic Plane Survey (MGPS-2) was carried out at 843 MHz with the Molonglo Observatory Synthesis Telescope (MOST) in its upgraded wide-field capability. The survey consists of 4.3 x 4.3 degree mosaic images with a 45 x 45 '' cosec(dec) restoring beam. It covers the range |b| < 10 degrees and 245 < l < 365 degrees and is the Galactic counterpart to the Sydney University Molonglo Sky Survey (SUMSS) which covers the whole southern sky with declination < -30 degrees.
People who are involved in the MGPS-2 survey are
It is also closely related to the SUMSS survey, and much of the work has been done in common with SUMSS.
The main data products from MGPS-2 are the set of 130 4.3 x 4.3 degree mosaic images and a compact source catalogue.
- The mosaics are available here (most of the mosaics are listed under Galactic, but there are some borderline regions that are in Extragalactic)
- The catalogue is available online (mgpscat.Aug-15-2007 and will be available on CDS in the near future
