The Galactic Center, as seen by the ATA

It’s been a little while since I’ve made any cool pictures. But lately, I’ve been focusing on getting a rough-draft version of a large-scale map of the Galactic Center from my ATA transient survey data. Here’s what I’ve got so far — click on the image for the full-scale version:

There are some holes because it turns out that some of our fields were only observed during the first season of observing, when we took data at a longer wavelength that turned out to be very difficult to work with.
