Hen 2-182 (2013)

This one is tiny but surprisingly bright. There were broad diffraction spikes I removed since it is a small, bright source.

This is a single channel of data subjectively colorized. Some triangles of data are missing from the corners.

You have to the two 200 second exposures rather than the combined data because the 400 second exposures used to create the combined data are completely saturated/blown out in the middle, obscuring the subtle details such as the central star and slightly dimmer areas.

All channels: hst_06353_06_wfpc2_f656n_pc_03_drz + hst_06353_06_wfpc2_f656n_pc_04_drz

North is up.
