    To be honest - I haven't a clue! Would be nice to have the neighboring images... I will send a request.

    Cool - looks like a nearby compact group of galaxies (the big white ones) AND two bright foreground stars.

    The nearby galaxies are unlikely to be acting as lenses - they're too close. Do you see any lensing by smaller, fainter red/yellow galaxies?

    No, this is the first 'up-close' galaxy cluster we have seen with CFHTLS images - would love to see the rest.

    The top left object is pronounced in the terapix image - looks like a triple merger 😃

    @leonmir56 There are no lenses (read below) in these images just an amazing close-by galactic cluster 😃 @C_cld is trying to identify it...
