SIMBA image of the infrared source IRAS 18434-0242

This SIMBA image is centered on the object IRAS 18434-0242 . It includes many bright sources that are associated with dense cores and compact HII regions located deep inside the cloud. A much less detailed map was made several years ago with a single channel bolometer on SEST. The new SIMBA map is more extended and shows more sources.
