Thanks, Steve.  I know, obviously it was the excitement of actually being able to see the quasars.  And to think that those photons started out on their jouney so many billions of years ago, eventually finding their way to my village, my telescope, and then landing on my camera sensor.  Makes you appreciate the enormous power of these things.

One day I will finish the image of NGC 1073, although it is rather small - somewhat less than 5' of arc, but weather etc.....

 

But pretty incredible all the same, for the reasons I gave above.

Chris, are the quasars in your image bright enough to observe ?

Near the Hamburger galaxy (NGC3628) there are these quasars that are suggested to be between 4 and 10 Giga light years away: http://www.waid-observatory.com/ngc3628-2016-03-31-quasars.html Back i

That would be a nice challenge for the winter months. The deepest I can get atm is measured in meters, not Mly.

Surely, text messages would have been faster. 😋

I would be very surprised if they were.  My image is comprised of 16 combined Luminance exposures each of 300 seconds, i.e. a total exposure time of 80 minutes.  And even then, the quasars are only just visible.  Eyes just don't work like that.

Not a chance then, way down the magnitude list
