Abstract:

We present preliminary results on the X-ray emission of discrete sources in the Galactic Center region from OSSE observations made between July, 1991 and September, 1992. These observations were designed to investigate the distribution of galactic emission from the central region of our galaxy. The approach consists of scans through the Galactic Center with different position angles of the OSSE collimators rectangular 3.8 deg. x 11.4 deg field-of-view. The sources 1E 1740-2942, GRS 1758-258, GX 3540, and GX 14, have all been observed in transient, intense states at various times during this period. A sample of these observations is presented here.
