Grand Stellar Nursery NGC 604 from Chandra

An x-ray/Chandra only version of NGC 604. I just like to include these to compare with the other two images. You can see how the point source at the top is blue which really separates it from the nebula's emissions.

 

This image was possible thanks to data from the following Chandra proposal:

The Giant Extragalactic Star-Forming Region NGC 604

 

Red: .30-.95 keV

Green: .95-2.87 keV

Blue: 2.87-7.00 keV

 

North is NOT up. It is 90° clockwise from up.
