Background Galaxies in Leo IV Field
500,000 light-years (150,000 parsecs)
The image was created from Hubble data from proposal 12549: T. Brown (STScI), et al. The science team comprises T. Brown and J. Tumlinson (STScI), M. Geha (Yale University), E. Kirby (California Institute of Technology), D. VandenBerg (University of Victoria), R. Munoz (Universidad de Chile), J. Kalirai (STScI), J. Simon (Observatories of the Carnegie Institute of Washington), R. Avila (STScI), P. Guhathakurta (UCO/Lick Observatory), A. Renzini (Osservatorio Astronomico), and H. Ferguson (STScI).
F606W (V) and F814W (I)
This image is a composite of separate exposures acquired by the ACS instrument. Several filters were used to sample various wavelengths. The color results from assigning different hues (colors) to each monochromatic (grayscale) image associated with an individual filter. In this case, the assigned colors are:
Blue: F606W (V)
Orange: F814W (I)
