    I was a little confused by the size of the heat signature compared with the small radio signature. Not sure if it is because of the perspective/angle or what actually caused the disparity?

    Looking at the SDSS image it seems that the bright object is a star. It doesn't generate diffraction spikes in the WISE data (not sure why that is), but it seems to be at the correct location. Given that the radio morphology is a double, I'd propose that the IR counterpart is too faint to be seen here, and it also appears to be too faint for SDSS.
