Abstract
MAGIC is one of the main instruments for exploring the galactic gamma-ray sky from ground
in the energy range of 50 GeV - 50 TeV. It consists of two 17 m diameter imaging atmospheric
Cherenkov telescopes located at the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory, on the Canary island of La Palma. Thanks to its excellent sensitivity, MAGIC has conducted relevant studies on galactic objects of different types at Very High Energies. Among them, the Crab pulsar up to TeV energies, the spectral cut-off of the supernova remnant Cassiopeia A, the super-orbital variability of the binary system LSI +61 303, the search for microqusars, multi-year observations of the Galactic Center and follow-up studies of unidentified HAWC sources. In many cases, the results from these observations challenge our understanding of the underlying emission mechanisms. Here we review the latest results from the observation of these galactic sources with MAGIC.
