Abstract / Description:Many of the galactic sources of interest for the MAGIC Telescope are expected to be extended. The good
telescope angular resolution of about 0.1 degree
allows us to study extended or off-axis sources with the appropriate
analysis methods. We have developed an analysis method (called Disp) that uses the information of the shower
image shape to reconstruct the position of the source for each detected shower. Starting from the previously
successful application by the Whipple Collaboration, the Disp method has been improved and adapted to
MAGIC. We report on the performance and present the results achieved when applying it to 5.5 hours of Crab
Nebula observed on-axis.
