Color:
This composite image includes exposures acquired by the ACSinstruments on the Hubble Space Telescope. Several filters were used to sample broad and narrow wavelength ranges. The color results from assigning different hues (colors) to each monochromatic (grayscale) image associated with an individual filter. In this case, the assigned colors are:
F606W (V) cyan
F814W (I) yellow
F658N (H-alpha) red
