About this image

Has anyone succeeded in imaging the jet in 3C273?

May be wishful thinking but I think something is beginning to appear in this image at the correct PA!

Hard to be certain but it seems very likely to me having looked at the AladinLite image.

Regardless, you have set me a new challenge for when I'm allowed to use my observatory again, so thanks!
