Abstract

We present the fifth portion of an unbiased survey of the Galactic plane, |b| ≤ 2°, for 6668-MHz methanol masers. This section of the survey completes the Galactic longitude range visible to the Parkes radio telescope, incorporating the longitude range 20°-60°. Within this section of the survey we find 265 methanol masers, 64 new to the survey, bringing the total number of methanol masers detected across the full longitude coverage (186°, through 0°, to 60°) to 972 sources.
