Figure 2: We report in this figure a 24 μm-MIPS SPITZER map of the Perseus molecular complex. In (a), the structures detected by the high angular resolution of SPITZER are evident. In (b), we see a degraded angular resolution map to 10 arc min in order to match current microwave resolution of typical AME regions. It is evident that the lower angular resolution introduces a shift in the emission centroid for nonspherical emitters. This results in a difficult interpretation in the comparison between microwave and IR maps detected at such different angular resolution.
