Centaurus A – studied fields

Two regions of Centaurus A (the rectangles in the upper left and lower right inserts) in which a search for variable stars was made. "Field 1" is located in an area north-east of the center in which many young stars are present. This is also the direction in which an outflow ("jet") is seen on deep optical and radio images. "Field 2" is positioned in the galaxy's halo, south of the centre. North is up and East is to the left.
