About this image

An image of N11 in the Large Magellanic Cloud, taken with the Curtis Schmidt telescope at Cerro Tololo Interamerican Observatory (CTIO) as part of the Magellanic Clouds Emission-Line Survey (MCELS). These data were taken by CTIO astronomical observers, Claudio Aguilera, Sean Points, and Chris Smith, who is also the lead investigator of the MCELS project.

This color image was produced using three separate exposures taken in hydrogen, sulfur and oxygen bandpasses. The green outline indicates the extent of the image made by Hubble.
