Abstract / Description:Recently, gamma radiation above a few hundred GeV has been detected from eight new sources in the Galactic Plane by the HESS collaboration. The source HESS J 1813-178 (HESS1813) has caused particular interest as its nature was unknown. Subsequent radio observations imply an association with the SNR G12.82-0.02. The source has also been detected by the INTEGRAL and ASCA satellites. At La Palma this source culminates at a zenith angle (ZA) of about 47$^{\circ}$. MAGIC has observed the source up to 52$^{\circ}$ ZA, for 20 hours in June and July 2005. The large zenith angle observations lead to a good sensitivity for energies in the TeV range. The observation confirms the VHE gamma emission from HESS J 1813-178. A preliminary flux determination yields a flux above 300 GeV of about 6\% of the Crab flux with a rather hard spectrum.
