Structure in the First Quadrant of the Galaxy: an Analysis of “TMGS” Star Counts using the “SKY” Model

Abstract

We analyse the stellar content of almost 300 deg of the sky close to the Galactic plane by directly comparing the predictions of the SKY model (Cohen 1994,1995; Wainscoat et al. 1992) with star counts taken from the Two Micron Galactic plane Survey (TMGS: Garzón et al. 1993). Through these comparisons we can examine discrepancies between counts and model… (More)
