The Hubble Heritage Project rendition involves merging the 3 black and white HST images above. Each filter has been assigned a color in chromatic order. (The top of the table also shows how color changes with wavelength.) Check out other information about our images. Other pages with examples of filters include the planetary nebula NGC 3132.

The Ring Nebula and these observations are described by Heritage team member Dr. Howard Bond, as well as listed in a fast fact table.
