The MOST Supernova Remnant Catalogue (MSC)
The MOST Supernova Remnant Catalogue (MSC) is a catalogue of supernova remnants (SNRs) in the southern Galaxy within the area 245 <= l <= 355 deg , |b| < 1.5 deg. It was produced from observations made at 0.843 GHz with a resolution of 43" using the Molonglo Observatory Synthesis Telescope (MOST). Here we present on-line images from the MSC. For full details, refer to the published version of the catalogue (J.B.Z. Whiteoak & A.J. Green, A&A Suppl. Ser., 118, 329-380 ). Click on the links below to access the catalogue (FITS, PS and JPEG formats can all be downloaded from these pages):
- Previously known SNRs (MSC.A)
- Newly discovered SNRs (MSC.B)
- All SNRs in MSC (MSC.A + MSC.B)
- Possible SNRs (MSC.C; table only - no images available)
- Photo gallery (JPEG format only):
- Gallery A (245 deg <= l <= 301 deg; 14 JPEG images, ~20 kB each)
- Gallery B (302 deg <= l <= 317 deg; 14 JPEG images, ~20 kB each)
