Observing M106 from the Ground



M106 observed from the ground and processed by astrophotographer Robert Gendler in a red, green, and blue (RGB) color palatte.
Astrophotographer R. Jay GaBany's rendition of M106 includes hydrogen filters that show bright pink spiral arms emminating from the nucleus of the galaxy.
Data from both ground-based images above were combined with Hubble data to produce this colorful, high-resolution image of M106. Astronomical images processed by Robert Gendler.
