Show Summary Details


I present a catalogue of the positions and correlated flux densities of 109 compact extragalactic radio sources in the Galactic plane determined from an analysis of a 48-h Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) experiment at 22 GHz with the European VLBI Network. The median position uncertainty is 9 mas. The correlated flux densities of the detected sources are in the range of 20–300 mJy. In addition to the target sources, nine water masers have been detected, of which two are new. I derived the positions of the masers with an accuracy of 30–200 mas and determined the velocities of the maser components and their correlated flux densities. The catalogue and the supporting material are available at
