First real-time EVN image

Above: The first e-VLBI image obtained by the EVN: gravitational lens system, JVAS B0218+357.
The first real-time EVN image was produced yesterday from observations carried out using three EVN telescopes (Onsala, Jodrell Bank and Westerbork). The data rate was 32Mb/s, this data being transferred from the stations directly into the EVN MkIV correlator at JIVE. The source observed was a double-image lens system, the expected structure being easily recovered in the map.

 

Additional information and images are available on the EVN web site.
