First image from the XMM-LSS Wide-Field X-Ray Survey

First image from the XMM-LSS X-Ray survey. It is actually a combination of fourteen separate "pointings" of this space observatory. It represents a region of the sky eight times larger than the full Moon and contains around 25 clusters. The circles represent the X-Ray sources previously known from the 1991 ROSAT All-Sky Survey.
