   CXOGC (Chandra X-ray Observatory, Galactic Center)= (CXOUGC) = (CXOGCR) Write:<<CXOGC JHHMMSS.s+DDMMSS>> N: 9017 Object:(X)  (SIMBAD class: X = X-ray Source) Note:The Chandra X-ray Observatory Galactic Center (CXOGC) project is an on-going, multi-year survey of X-ray sources in the Galactic Center from deep observations with the ACIS instrument on the Chandra X-ray Observatory.
The first-year's observation was centered near the radio position of Sagittarius A*, the compact nonthermal radio-source at the dynamical center of our Galaxy thought to be powered by matter accreting onto a supermassive black hole.
The deep imaging observation detected 150-200 X-ray sources in the 0.5-7 keV passband.
Several hundred more sources will be detected as we perform deeper exposures of the Galactic Center with Chandra in the coming years.
The ACIS-I field of view is 17-arcmin x17-arcmin.
