Visibility III / V

The M87 also got lost in front of the tube with a short exposure.

The last image is a combination of dozens of individual images from the Unistellar community. The superimage features a relativistic shower radiating from a supermassive black hole in the core of the M87.

The M87 galaxy is interesting because it is the first black hole ever photographed by humans. Event Horizon Telescope now took the iconic image of the M87 * black hole in 2019 using telescopes around the world.

A relativistic shower from the center of the black hole also appeared within minutes
