ASKAP views of the Galactic Plane
This month's ASKAP update, described in yesterday's ADAP, also contained the images above, of a portion of our galaxy. The images were made at 944 MHz on the left and 1296 MHz on the right and are displayed at the natural resolution of the image. While the slight improvement in angular resolution in the higher resolution image is evident, the images highlight the diversity of structures apparent along the Galactic Plane, includinng shell-like supernova remnants, and other loops and extended objects. The compact point-like objects in the image are not stars, but other "background" galaxies lying well outside the Milky Way. (Image credit: Emil Lenc)
