Abstract
We present the result of observations of the nearby starburst galaxy NGC 253 with the H.E.S.S. detector in 2003. We find no evidence for very high gamma-ray emission from this object. Gamma-ray emission above 400 GeV from NGC253 had been reported by the CANGAROO collaboration in 2002. From H.E.S.S. date we derive upper limits on the flux above 300 GeV of 1.9 x 10-12 photons cm-2 s-1 for a point-like source and 6.3 x 10-12 photons cm-2 s-1 for a source of size 0.5° as reported by CANGAROO, both at a confidence level of 99%. These upper limits are inconsistent with the spectrum reported by CANGOROO. The expected very high energy gamma-ray emission from this object is discussed in the framework of a galactic wind propagation model.
