    A five-image lensed quasar discovered by PanSTARRS and GAIA

    Dear all,

    Another previously unknown lensed quasar was discovered, this time by combining data from PanSTARRS and GAIA. The individual components, however, are very faint. The paper mentions (GAIA) g-band and (PanSTARRS) r-band magnitudes of 19 and fainter. Still, you never know

    The paper (including RA and DEC in degrees and images of the area) can be found here

    Clear skies, Wouter

    I don't think my telescope will go to 19th magnitude!
