AG Carinae

Don't have a lot of free time lately, but this year's anniversary image seemed so nice and simple I decided to process my own version of it during some much needed breaks between tending to the baby's needs. I went with a kind of fiery scheme for the narrowband data, and leaned toward blue for the medium/wideband data. You gotta figure with the central star being a blue supergiant that reflection nebula should be a little blue due to reflected starlight. Anyway, here's a link to the Hubblesite press release, where there's a lot of extra information as well as a kind of 3D tilting animation:


Red/orange screen: WFC3/UVIS F657N

Red: WFC3/UVIS F845M

Green: WFC3/UVIS F547M

Blue: WFC3/UVIS F275W


North is up.
