|Abstract: ||We present available BATSE Earth-occultation observations of Cen A (the brightest extragalactic hard X-ray source) and NGC 4151 (the archetypical Seyfert I) from 1991 May through 1992 February, in the 20 keV to 1.5 MeV range. We compare the results with those obtained by OSSE during viewing periods 4 (NGC 4151) and 12 (Cen A). In general Earth-occultation sensitivities achieved by BATSE are a few times poorer than those attainable by OSSE, but sources are observable almost continuously, during all CGRO viewing periods. Data from the two instrumants are thus nicely complementary.|
