The Swift Galactic Plane Survey team report the detection of 140 point like X-ray sources (0.3 - 10 keV) in the initial 25% of the survey. The listed sources are those we consider to be robust detections at the current time. Further source releases will occur as observations are accumulated.

Sources are divided into those detected at a significance of greater than 3 sigma (95 in total - top) and 2-3 sigma (55 in total - bottom).

Please see the link at the bottom of this telegram for the full source list.

Position error 
================== 
All position errors are preliminary 1 sigma uncertainties. 
 
Significance 
================== 
In the low count limit, source significance is calculated using the Gehrels error 
(Gehrels N., 1986, ApJ, 303, 336). 
 
X-ray count rate 
================== 
* Source displays evidence of pile-up, which is not corrected for at this time. 
 
UV magnitudes 
================== 
X: Counterpart is saturated, photometry unreliable. 
a: 2 measurements of the counterpart, i.e., counterpart detected in 2 separate images. 
b: 2 counterparts at approximately similar separation from the X-ray source. 
 
Simbad  
==================  
Candidate counterparts to the X-ray sources, as listed in the Simbad database, are indicated (w/ 
distance) if they lie within 30" of the XRT position.

The Swift Galactic Plane Survey is tiling 240 square degrees of the Galactic plane, from -60 < l < 
60 and -1 < b < -1. Each exposure is approximately 500 seconds in duration, and includes 
simultaneous XRT (0.3-10 keV) and UVOT/UVM2 images (2000-2500 Angstroms).  All values 
reported herein should be considered as preliminary, a comprehensive analysis will be presented in 
Reynolds et al. (2012) in prep.
