Wide-field view of the sky around the most remote quasar

This visible-light wide-field image of the region around ULAS J1120+0641, the most distant quasar found so far, was created from photographs taken through red and blue filters and forming part of the Digitized Sky Survey 2. The object itself lies very close to the centre and is not visible in this picture, but many other, much closer, galaxies are seen in this wide-field view that spans about three degrees of sky.
