But have you seen Pickering's Triangle?

by Kathleen McCoy  |   

A new wide-field image of Pickering's Triangle is being released today in Austin, Texas at the 211th meeting of the American Astronomical Society. The image was taken with the National Science Foundation's Mayall 4-meter telescope at Kitt Peak National Observatory.

This new image was obtained September 2007 by Travis Rector (University of Alaska Anchorage) and Heidi Schweiker (WIYN) by combining two full pointings of the 64-megapixel NOAO Mosaic-1 imager, mounted on the historic Mayall telescope.
