We present here a computer model of the spatial distribution of the luminosity, produced by old isolated neutron stars and black holes accreting from the interstellar medium. We show that the luminosity distributions in the Galaxy have a ring structure, with a maximum at radius.
Key words: stars: neutron black hole physics Galaxy: stellar content
