SNR J0534.2-7033 CXO

A supernova remnant in the Large Magellanic Cloud from Chandra, seen in x-ray light.

 

I did the color filtering differently this time, following the example given on this page: hea-www.harvard.edu/ChandraSNR/SNRJ0534.2-7033/chandra_im...

 

Truth be told, and I'd never deny it, I still don't really know what I'm doing when I work with Chandra data. I mean, I can smooth it decently, but when it comes to picking and understanding the energy levels to assign colors to, it's not something I know much about.

 

Anyway, this is not the longest exposure ever, so it's pretty noisy, which you can probably still see despite the attempt at smoothing.

 

Hubble+Chandra version: flic.kr/p/2h7ympS

Hubble only version: flic.kr/p/2h7ykXj

 

Red: .30-.80 keV

Green: .80-1.10 keV

Blue: 1.10-2.00 keV

 

North is NOT up. It is 8.55° counter-clockwise from up.
