Hubble Space Telescope multi-color ACS mosaic of M51: browse images
These browse images are not directly related to the mosaiced FITS files
being distributed as High-Level Science Products (HLSP). The images were created
from data drizzled by "pointing" to a scale of 0.05 arcsecond per pixel for the
public release images. There are no HLSP for the individual pointings.
We present the "browse" images to show a higher level of detail
than are present in the mosaic previews.
The public release data
includes large images showing lots of detail.
F658N Hα [N II]
These browse images were provided by Hubble Heritage Team Member Zolt Levay.
