Extended Groth Strip - Full Hubble Image
Extended Groth Strip (EGS)
The Extended Groth Strip is 1.1 degrees long by 0.15 degrees wide (70.5 x 10.1 arcminutes, respectively).
The Hubble image was created from HST data from proposal 10134: M. Davis (University of California, Berkeley), M. Ashby (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics), T. Small (California Institute of Technology), P. Guhathakurta (University of California, Santa Cruz), L. Simard (Dominion Astrophysical Observatory), K. Noeske (University of California, Santa Cruz), S. Kwok, J. Mader, and P. Amico (California Association for Research in Astronomy (CARA)), A. Koekemoer and R. Somerville (STScI), S. Faber (University of California, Santa Cruz), J. Newman (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory), D. Koo (University of California, Santa Cruz), S. White, G. Kauffmann, and V. Springel (Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics, Garching), M. Cooper (University of California, Berkeley), A. Metevier and B. Weiner (University of California, Santa Cruz), and K. Bundy (California Institute of Technology).
F606W (V) and F814W (I)
This image is a composite of many separate exposures made by the WFPC2 instrument on the Hubble Space Telescope using two different filters to sample broad wavelength ranges. The color results from assigning different hues (colors) to each monochromatic image. In this case, the assigned colors are:
Blue: F606W (V)
Green: F606W (V) + F814W (I)
Red: F814W (I)
