  • The GLIMPSE (Galactic Legacy Mid-Plane Survey Extraordinaire) Point Source Catalog of ~30 million mid-infrared sources toward the inner Galaxy, 10° ≤ |l| ≤ 65° and |b| ≤ 1°, was used to determine the distribution of stars in Galactic longitude, l, latitude, b, and apparent magnitude, m. The counts versus longitude can be approximated by the modified Bessel function N = N0(l/l0)K1(l/l0), where l0 is insensitive to limiting magnitude, band choice, and side of Galactic center: l0 = 17°-30° with a… CONTINUE READING
