We report results of a search for continuous gravitational waves from a region covering the globular cluster Terzan 5 and the galactic center. Continuous gravitational waves are expected from fast-spinning, slightly non-axisymmetric isolated neutron stars as well as more exotic objects. The regions that we target are believed to be unusually abundant in neutron stars. We use a new loosely coherent search method that allows to reach unprecedented levels of sensitivity for this type of search…
