    We can't tell what kind of object it is without additional data. It does seem to be a bright point source, though, so a good candidate.

    Hard to tell at wavelength of which this object peaks in terms of brightness.

    Hi @artman40, hard to tell from the images for sure, but if you look at the SED it tells you exactly that (for a limited # of wavelengths)

    SED only shows infrared light but Sun-like and hotter stars have peaks in brightness at shorter wavelengths.

    (oh and stars, which is what this guy probably is, peak somewhere in the visible )
