Abstract : The extended H.E.S.S. Galactic Plane Survey overlaps with some regions covered by the water Cherenkov detector Milagro sky survey. The latter experiment has reported 3 new sources and 4 hot spots, including MGRO J1908+06 above 12 TeV. The H.E.S.S. observations around 40 degrees of longitude confirm this detection. We take advantage of the superior sensitivity of H.E.S.S. above 0.2 TeV and its better energy and angular resolution to study in detail the morphology, spectrum and possible counterparts for this source.
