UGC 4459

A dwarf galaxy dataset I put together after being woken up by my cat, Tofu. I was unable to get back to sleep, so I decided to make myself useful.


This was put together using some custom drizzled data made by Meredith Durbin, attribution as follows:

NASA/ESA/Meredith Durbin/Judy Schmidt


Regarding the processing: The near-infrared data doesn't cover the entire image. It is smaller and diagonally positioned in a way that leaves three of the corners uncovered.


That data came from these proposals:

Quantifying Star Formation and Feedback: The M81 Group Dwarf Galaxies

A Calibration Database for Stellar Models of Asymptotic Giant Branch Stars


Red: WFC3/IR F110W+WFC3/IR F160W

Orange: ACS/WFC F814W

Cyan: ACS/WFC F555W


North is 32.50° clockwise from up.
