Hearty welcome art thou as a lord!

In science:

We also use stacking analyses to probe the average X-ray emission properties of HDF-N galaxies that are not individually detected in the X-ray band.
The Chandra Deep Survey of the Hubble Deep Field North Area. IV. An Ultradeep Image of the HDF-N
CXOHDFN J123644.3+621132 is only detected in the soft band and appears to be a member of the second class that has now been individually detected (previously the X-ray emission from the second class was only detectable when many ob jects were stacked).
The Chandra Deep Survey of the Hubble Deep Field North Area. IV. An Ultradeep Image of the HDF-N
Our faintest HDF-N sources occupy a region of low count rate and relatively low band ratio that has not been previously seen for individual sources, although stacking analyses had suggested that sources would occupy this region (e.g., Figure 2 of Giacconi et al. 2001).
The Chandra Deep Survey of the Hubble Deep Field North Area. IV. An Ultradeep Image of the HDF-N
There also appears to be a detection in the stacked soft-band image.
The Chandra Deep Survey of the Hubble Deep Field North Area. IV. An Ultradeep Image of the HDF-N
We have not found statistically signi´Čücant evidence for a detection in the hard-band stacked image.
