Description

I wasn't sure if I'd be able to image the jet of M87, but was pleasantly surprised to see it in the sub frames, and it is quite distinctly blue. A lot of noise due to the persistent smoke and high level cloud over the last few nights meaning I've kept in subs I normally wouldn't just to get some depth.
