    The response of micro strip gas counters (MSGC) has been studied for particle tracks with inclined incidence with respect to the strip plane. The setup consisted of four 10 × 10 cm2 MSGC detectors arranged in a cosmic ray hodoscope with a trigger threshold of 300 MeV/c for muons. Results are given for the collected charge, the spatial resolution and the detection efficiencies. A Monte Carlo simulation has been used to understand the effects of cross talk in the data and to extrapolate the data to other angles of incidence.
