My image of the Cat's Paw used in a press release

Hi all,

It was a nice surprise to notice that my image of the Cat's Paw was used in this press release last year.

It's a bit funny that the footnote incorrectly states that the image was taken with the HST, while in fact I took this very image with a 4" from the inner city in Brisbane

NASA credited themselves because I used Fits Liberator for initial data stretching.

I thought it was cool enough to share

Well, my name is mentioned too, but it is incorrect that image was taken with the HST. I was silly enough to show it to my better half, and she said that clearly I do not need a better telescope anymore...
