Compass and Scale Image for N6946-BH1
22 million light-years (6.7 megaparsecs)
WFPC2>F606W (wide V), July 8, 2007 (1,600 seconds)
WFPC2> F814W, July 8, 2007 (1,600 seconds)
WFC3/UVIS > F606W (wide V), Oct. 8, 2015 (1,233 seconds)
WFC3/UVIS> F814W, Oct. 8, 2015 (1,233 seconds)
These images are a composite of separate exposures acquired by the WFPC2 and WFC3/UVIS instruments on the Hubble Space Telescope. Two filters in each instrument were used to sample narrow wavelength ranges. 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 cyan: F606W and orange: F814W.
