An observation of 3C 295 during the calibration phase reveals X-ray emission from the previously known cluster gas, the core of the galaxy, and from each of the two prominent radio hotspots. We discuss the possible emission processes for the hotspots and argue that a synchrotron self-Compton model is preferred for part or all of the observed X-ray emission.
