Abstract / Description:Located at the Canary island of La Palma, the single-dish MAGIC telescope currently has the lowest energy
threshold achieved by any Cherenkov telescope, which can be as low as 25 GeV. In the last two years, the MAGIC
telescope has detected a significant amount of galactic sources that emit at very high energies (up to several
TeV). Here we present the most recent results that have yielded important scientific highlights in astrophysics,
which include the first detection of gamma-ray emission from a pulsar, an X-ray binary system and a stellar-mass
black hole. We also make a review of the latest results of the MAGIC observations on galactic sources, which will
include also EGRET unidentified sources, the Galactic Centre, pulsars and supernova remnants.
