In Schödel et al. (2014), the axis labels of Figs. 4, 6−9, 11, and 13 should not refer to “RA” (Right ascension) and “Dec” (Declination) because the orientation of all the images is such that Galactic north is up and Galactic east is to the left. Instead, the axis labels indicate the offsets from Sagittarius A* parallel and perpendicular to the Galactic plane, as is correctly described in Fig. 1 and its caption.


We thank Ortwin Gerhard for bringing this to our attention.
