Description

This was a nice data set to play with that even showed a nice amount of IFN in the area that I cross checked with RBA's image to see if it was an artifact or not. Sure enough it was there though! In this image though, I decided to push it into the background. I didn't really like how busy it made the image. One day I may do a future revision that enhances this IFN however. I was also pleasantly surprised with how prominent the jet in M87 was in the image, that sucker is bright!

Thanks for looking!
