4h40 exposure (L:56x300s)
Acquired on the 28th of February 2019 with Samyang 135mm
In previous post was described a method to identify Quasars using Aladin Destop software.
The method is now applied on this wide field image (central part of Virgo galaxy cluster) which has been annotated accordingly in orange.
Here is below screen captures of those identifications.
6 Quasars… among others!
Q1224+1349 and Q1222.9+1334 Quasars
To conclude about these identifications, this is quite a surprise to discover the accessibility of such objects. More surprising is the redshift of those objects distant of several billion light years – up to Z=3 for Q1209+1524 Quasar! Totally crazy to discover that so old photons can be captured with a simple 135mm DSLR lens!!!
