Abell 2744 (2013)

A massive cluster of galaxies imaged for the Frontier Fields program. I couldn’t bear cropping all the neat stuff off the edges so I left all of them there. There are some forgivable (hopefully) blank spots because of this.

Also, see my processing of a parallel observation here.

This data is all available here.

North is NOT up. It’s 62.2° counter-clockwise from up.
