The "2-year and 3-month all-sky X-ray Image" obtained with the Gas Slit Camera (GSC) of MAXI in 2009/9/26-2011/12/10. The colors are soft (2-4 keV in red), middle (4-8 keV in green), and hard (8-16 keV in blue) X-rays. About 400 sources as well as the galactic ridge emission are detected. The blue sources are mostly binary X-ray pulsars, the orange are low-mass X-ray binaries, and the red are supernova remnants. Both 1650V and 1550V data are used. Thanks to the deeper exposure more faint extra-galactic objects have got visible. The image is without correction for exposure.
Notice of erratum:
In the archived MAXI/GSC light-curve data, version 1.4 which had been released since 2012 November to 2013 April 24, had mistaken the values of the statistical uncertainties. They were a half of the correct values. The erratum was fixed on 2013 April 26.
If you have these light curve data, please download the latest one from our archive page, again.
We apologize for causing the inconvenience.
