Bepposax image (left) and ROSAT HRI image of the Lockman Hole.

Hard X-ray BeppoSAX observation of the "Lockman hole", the site of the most sensitive survey carried out so far in the soft X-ray band. The image to the left is the background subtracted ~130,000 seconds MECS observation showing a number of hard X-ray sources. On the right side the iso-intensity contours of the BeppoSAX 2-10 keV sources are superposed to the ROSAT HRI ultra-deep (> 1,100,000 seconds) soft X-ray image of the same region. Courtesy of J.
