After a long break from the HLA I came back to it yesterday and quite quickly came across this UVIS data for M100. Even though three filters were used, the colors came out a little flat. Still, it’s a nice galaxy. I resisted the urge to clone data into the chip gap and instead ended up with some pretty blurry, low resolution data from MAST so if you notice that blurry, odd colored line, that’s what that is.
Some of the chip gap data:
The rest was a “search preview” from the MAST search result. The preview files didn’t have proper filenames and I lost track of which ones I used.
Hubble data is public domain, but I put a lot of work into combining it into beautiful color images. The minimal credit line should read: NASA / ESA / J. Schmidt
