Messier 77 Hubble Space Telescope

Well, this was my hardest job until now. Combining the different datasets to get equal colors was really hard. M77 was not fully covered by one dataset, so I had to combine channels of the WFPC2 with different wavelengths and tune the colors to get them to fit. But the result is in my opinion quite astonishing. Unbelievable this one was not released before....

    You can buy nice canvas prints and much more via:

    www.astro-photo.nl --> webshop --> click the link there (unfortunately I can't post the link directly here...)

    Also unbelievable the esa didn't see it as worth while to allow us to download the file. To bad all your hard work will only be appreciated for a short time rather than uploaded to the masses and appreciated long term.

    @Bob
    You *can* get the files, they are public from the Hubble archive (as are all the Hubble files). But this was buried with zillions of other images, so it was a great job to find this dataset!
    And Andre's work will be preserved: the image will be published on SpaceTelescope.org (and will of course give credit to Andre for finding it!).

    Is there any idea when it will be published? I'm very curious :)
