Abstract:

The Oriented Scintillation Spectrometer Experiment OSSE on the COMPTON Gamma Ray Observatory has undertaken comprehensive observations of many galactic sources since launch in April 1991. These include investigations of binary X-ray sources, pulsars, several transient X-ray sources observed as Targets-of- Opportunity, and Nova Cygni 1992. Multiple observations of the galactic center region were undertaken to map the diffuse galactic emission and study the several discrete sources in that region. An overview of the galactic source observations and selected results are presented.
