Fig. 2.11 The gravitationally amplified event 98-SMC-01 detected by the MACHO team, and which had a gravitational amplification factor of about 100. These images show the object during the amplification phase (left) and then following the amplification and the passage of the lensing body (right). The field size is about 70 x 70 arcsec. This particular event has been attributed to a low-mass binary deflector in the Small Magellanic Cloud
