Hubble's First Frontier Field Finds Thousands of Unseen, Faraway Galaxies

Technical facts about this news release:

About the Object
Object Name: Abell 2744, Pandora's Cluster
Object Description: Galaxy Cluster and Gravitational Lens
Position (J2000): R.A. 00h 14m 21s.2
Dec. -30° 23' 50".1
Constellation: Sculptor
Redshift: z=0.308
About the Data
Data Description: Data were obtained as part of the HST proposals 11689: R. Dupke (Eureka Scientific Inc.) et al., 13386: S. Rodney (JHU) et al., and 13495: J. Lotz (STScI) et al.
Exposure Date(s): October 2009; August - November 2013
Exposure Time: 67 hours
Instruments and Filters: ACS/WFC: F435W (B), F606W (V), F814W (I)
WFC3/IR: F105W (Y), F125W (J), F140W (JH), F160W (H)

Release Date: January 7, 2014
Colors: This image is a composite of separate exposures acquired by the ACS and WFC3 instruments on the Hubble Space Telescope. Several filters were used to sample broad 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:
ACS/WFC F435W (B) + F606W (V) blue
ACS/WFC F814W (I) + WFC3/IR F105W (Y) green
WFC3/IR F125W (J) + F140W (JH) + F160W (H) red
Orientation/Scale: Compass and Scale Image for Abell 2744
