Chandra Deep Field South

(CDFS, CDF-S)
(highly-detailed X-ray image of small region of the sky taken by Chandra)

The Chandra Deep Field South (CDFS or CDF-S) is an X-ray image of a small region of the sky (within constellation Fornax) taken over a very long exposure (on the order of 80 days) with the Chandra X-ray Observatory (CXO). The image reveals many distant X-ray sources, which suggest Black Holes, i.e., Active Galactic Nuclei.
