    30+ contours

    Yeah, a bit annoying, isn't it?

    Apart from the #doublelobe in the center, and just possibly the 'double contour' thing to the lower-right, I think everything in this radio image is an #artifact.

    Happy hunting! 😃

    Again, another interesting thing. These 30+ contours relate to how the radio image was created. These many single contours are considered artifacts in the radio image meaning that there was something bad in the data that wasn't removed prior to imaging. The actual radio source is located at the centre of the image.
