    Now that's what I call a Bugaboo.

    That's so amazing to be able to capture an image like that, considering the distance. Looking forward to exploring the associated paper later this evening. Thanks much not_Fritz.

    It is the archetypal Bugaboo though less famous than its Piscean cousin. More background is at
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malin_1

    The link to the paper in the article doesn't work for me. So just in case....
