The Oriented Scintillation Spectrometer Experiment (OSSE) on the COMPTON Gamma Ray Observatory has undertaken comprehensive observations of astrophysical sources during the eighteen-month Phase 1 of the mission. These include investigations of many galactic sources, including binary X-ray sources, pulsars, several transient X-ray sources observed as Targets-of-Opportunity, and Nova Cygni 1992. Multiple observations of the galactic center region were undertaken to map the diffuse galactic emission and search for point sources. An overview of the galactic source observations and some preliminary results are presented.
