Abstract (from CDS):

The Massive Young star-forming complex Study in Infrared and X-ray (MYStIX) uses data from the Chandra X-Ray Observatory to identify and characterize the young stellar populations in 20 Galactic (d < 4 kpc) massive star-forming regions. Here, the X-ray analysis for Chandra ACIS-I observations of 10 of the MYStIX fields is described, and a catalog of >10,000 X-ray sources is presented. In comparison to other published Chandra source lists for the same regions, the number of MYStIX-detected faint X-ray sources in a region is often doubled. While the higher catalog sensitivity increases the chance of false detections, it also increases the number of matches to infrared stars. X-ray emitting contaminants include foreground stars, background stars, and extragalactic sources. The X-ray properties of sources in these classes are discussed.
