MAXI has not only a wide field of view, but also a higher sensitivity by an order of magnitude than ever. The observable distance reaches to the extra galactic objects. The figure is conceptual drawing of the extra galactic nucleus, i.e. a black hole emitting jets, surrounding by thick accretion torus. The MAXI data are automatically processed. When it discovers a transient, an alert will be issued to observers world-wide within 30s.
This web page contains a part of the MAXI data products.
