    Hi all, today is my first day on this site, I'm looking at the attached image (FIRSTJ010938.8+065354) and had difficulty categorising/classifying the IR/Radio differences. The largest image in the middle, I identified potentially as having three, very feint IR sources, top most largest area to have an extremely feint IR source top centre and the right hand lowest large area to have no IR source at all.

    To be honest, I'm not sure if I'm doing this correctly or not, would anyone be able to confirm that they agree with me or not?

    Thanks in anticipation for your feedback,
