In the interactive Aitoff maps blue circles represent gamma-ray sources listed in the 3rd EGRET catalog.
The size is proportional to gamma-ray flux from 3EG (E>100 MeV)
Outer red circle = 60 deg (approximate GRID FOV)
Inner red circe = 30 deg (approximate SA FOV)

The AGILE gamma-ray Field Of View (FOV) is ~ 3 sr.

The AGILE hard x-ray FOV is ~ 0.8 sr
