This image is a composite of many separate exposures made by the ACS and WFC3 instruments on the Hubble Space Telescope using ten different filters. The color results from assigning different hues (colors) to each monochromatic image. In this case, the assigned colors are:

ACS/WFC: F435W (B), F606W (V)

blue

ACS/WFC F775W (i) + F850LP (z)

green

WFC3/IR F105W (Y) + F125W (J) + F160W (H)
