Abstract

The first flight of a new balloon-borne gamma-ray imaging payload (GRIP) occurred on Oct. 15 and 16, 1986 from Palestine, Texas. Observations included the quasar 3C273, the galactic center, and the Crab and Cygnus regions. We discuss the instrument performance and present images of the Crab and Cygnus regions with 0.6 degree resolution over a 20 degree field of view.
