Abstract

The EAS-TOP Extensive Air Shower array, on top of the under-ground Gran Sasso Laboratory, is fully operating as a γ-ray astronomy observatory since the beginning of 1989. After showing the measured angular resolution of the detector, we present the results obtained from the analysis of 280 days of measurements in 1989-1990, with the purpose of investigating possible emission (d.c. and sporadic) from the candidate sources in the Northern hemisphere at an energy, >200 TeV.
