Abstract

A search for steadyTeV point sources anywherein the northern skyhas been made withdata from the Milagritoair-shower particle detector. Over3 × 109 events,collected from 1997 Februaryto 1998 May, havebeen used in thisstudy. No statistically significantexcess above the backgroundfrom the isotropic fluxof cosmic rays wasfound for any directionof the sky withdeclination between -5° and717. Upper limits arederived for the photonflux above 1 TeVfrom any steady pointsource in the northernsky.
