NGC 6814 (2014)

Just a single pass on this for now. I noticed there is more data coming for it later this year as the proprietary time limit runs out so we should be able to get a decent color image when that happens. No Halpha coming, unfortunately.

This particular exposure was taken for Improving the Radius-Luminosity Relationship for Broad-Lined AGNs with a New Reverberation Sample (HST Proposal 11662). Infrared and wideband green data will eventually be publicly available through Proposal 12961.

Data used: hst_11662_12_wfc3_uvis_f547m_sci

North is NOT up. It is 59.1° counter-clockwise from up.

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
