Good Morning!
Had to break up in the second night far to early, so not the amount of exposure time I've wished for, but it is what it is.

But happy to have been able to image the 5000 lightyears long relativistic jet coming out of Virgo A, Messier 87, caused by its 6.5billion solar masses black hole as shown in the cropped image:

Wow, that is quit impressive. Did you use an IR sensetive sensor to capture it or just simple sensor?

A photon only stops "existing" when it is captured by your sensor.
