The pulsar wind nebula (PWN) 3C 58 is one of the historical very-high-energy (VHE; E>100 GeV) gamma-ray source candidates. It is energized by one of the highest spin-down power pulsars known (5% of Crab pulsar) and it has been compared to the Crab Nebula due to their morphological similarities. This object was previously observed by imaging atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes (Whipple, VERITAS...

The High Altitude Water Cherenkov (HAWC) Observatory is being constructed at the Volcan Sierra Negra in Mexico (latitude 19o N) at 4,100m altitude. Having a modular design of 300 water Cherenkov detectors over an area of 22,000 m2 it is designed to survey continuously the sky overhead with an instantaneous field of view of 2sr detecting air-showers from cosmic and gamma-rays at energies from...

The Pierre Auger Observatory, located in Argentina, provides an unprecedented integrated aperture for the search of photons with energy above 10^17 eV in a large portion of the southern sky. We will discuss the results obtained with fluorescence and surface detectors in diffuse and directional searches for primary photons in the EeV energy range.

After a decade-long survey of the Galactic plane, the H.E.S.S. telescopes have amassed an unprecedented VHE gamma-ray dataset that continues to reveal new insights into the Galaxy at TeV energies. A 28-m class telescope was recently added to the now 5-telescope array, making it the first hybrid system in VHE astronomy. The upgrade further enhances the detection capabilities of H.E.S.S. and...

We report on the observations of gamma-ray emitting binaries obtained with the High Energy Stereoscopic System of Cherenkov telescopes. Recent results on PSR B1259-63, HESS J0632+057 and HESS J1018-589 will be reviewed. In the case of PSR B1259-63, a detailed multiwavelength campaign from radio to VHEs has been organized to follow its periastron passage in 2014, including also the occurrence...
