NGC-2174 in Multi-Band-Color Heritage

This my interpretation of the Hubble Heritage data NGC 2174 in Multi-Band Colour.



The original data can be found here if you want to have a go :)



To commemorate HST's 24th anniversary, the Hubble Heritage Team has observed a dramatic dust pillar in NGC2174 with the WFC3 infrared camera. This new view is strikingly different than previous Hubble images obtained in visible light with the Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 (Proposal 9091, PI: Hester).

The new WFC3 observations were obtained in February 2014 and include 4 tiles in a 2x2 mosaic pattern, where a small shift between tiles allows for the removal of detector artifacts. (See Proposal 13623, PI: Levay for details.) The broad band F105W like emoticon, F125W (J), and F160W (H) filters highlight unique physical processes occurring in and around the nebula, and they combine to produce a dramatic new color image.
