ROSAT spectro-imagery of the North Cygnus Loop

Abstract

We present a detailed analysis of the northern part of the Cygnus Loop using the spectro-imaging capability of the PSPC and the superior spatial resolution of the HRI on board the ROSAT satellite. Large scale comparison between PSPC brightness and energy maps reveals that the bright emission structures are associated with soft emission, whereas the diffuse… (More)
