The Plane of our Galaxy is regularly observed by the INTEGRAL satellite by means of scheduled scans. We present here results from the IBIS/ISGRI instrument using data from the first two Galactic Plane Scans performed at the end of the Performance Verification phase, while INTEGRAL was pointed towards the Cygnus region. Considering the predicted IBIS sensitivity, we expected three persistent sources to be detectable: Cyg X-1, Cyg X-3, Cyg X-2, in order of decreasing intensity in the hard-X…

First results from the IBIS/ISGRI data obtained during the Galactic Plane Scan. II: The Vela region

We report on INTEGRAL/IBIS observations of the Vela region during a Galactic Plane Scan (hereafter GPS) pre- senting the IBIS in-flight performances during these operations. Among all the known

INTEGRAL/IBIS 7-year All-Sky Hard X-ray Survey - I. Image reconstruction

This paper is the first in a series devoted to the hard X-ray whole sky survey performed by the INTEGRAL observatory over seven years. Here we present an improved method for image reconstruction with

INTEGRAL observations of the peculiar BeX System SAX J2103.5+4545

We present an INTEGRAL data analysis of the X-ray transient SAX J2103.5+4545 during two outbursts detected in December 2002. The INTEGRAL coordinates and error circle agree with the position of the

IBIS preliminary results on Cygnus X-1 spectral and temporal characteristics

We report preliminary results of a broadband spectral and temporal study of the black-hole binary Cyg X-1 performed with the IBIS telescope. Cyg X-1 was the first pointed celestial target of IBIS

INTEGRAL/RXTE observations of Cygnus X-1

We present results from simultaneous observations of Cyg X‐1 with INTEGRAL and RXTE in 2002 November and December, employing the new RXTE calibration from HEASOFT 5.3. The broad‐band X‐ray/γ‐ray

The INTEGRAL IBIS/ISGRI System Point Spread Function and source location accuracy

The imager on board INTEGRAL (IBIS) presently provides the most detailed sky images ever obtained at energies above 30 keV. The telescope is based on a coded aperture imaging system which allows to

First results from the INTEGRAL galactic plane scans

Scans of the Galactic plane performed at regular intervals constitute a key element of the guaranteed time obser- vations of the INTEGRAL observing programme. These scans are done for two reasons:

Understanding the Long-Term Spectral Variability of Cygnus X-1 with Burst and Transient Source Experiment and All-Sky Monitor Observations

We present a comprehensive analysis of all observations of Cyg X-1 by the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory Burst and Transient Source Experiment (BATSE; 20-300 keV) and by the Rossi X-Ray Timing

IBIS: The Imager on-board INTEGRAL

The IBIS telescope is the high angular resolution gamma-ray imager on-board the INTEGRAL Observatory, suc- cessfully launched from Baikonur (Kazakhstan) the 17th of October 2002. This medium size ESA

ISGRI: The INTEGRAL soft gamma-ray imager

For the first time in the history of high energyastronomy, a large CdTe gamma-ray camera is operating in space. ISGRI is the low-energy camera of the IBIS telescope on board the INTEGRAL satellite.

Understanding the long-term spectral variability of Cygnus X-1 with BATSE and ASM observations

We present an analysis of all observations of Cygnus X-1 by the BATSE (20-300 keV) and by ASM (1.5-12 keV) until 2002 June, including 1200 days of simultaneous data. We find a number of correlations
