Did I just found 4 simulated quasars?

    If you look at the image, you can see two times two sims quasars. Is this right? And if so, did i find something exeptional?

    There are no sims in this image. The objects at 9 o'clock are two star overlapping a galaxy. Same for 1 o'clock.

    Just a very busy patch of stars along with 1 edge-on / 2 spiral / a few non-descipt galaxies:)

    Lensed quasars will always group quite close to the lensing or foreground galaxy - they will not be spread out over the whole image 😃
