NGC 1300 – a Hubble Telescope mosaic

This is a 2 panel mosaic assembled from Hubble Advanced Camera for Surveys data. NGC 1300 is too large to fit the entire galaxy on the detector so this image was assembled from two data sets, one for each side of the galaxy.

Data from the 814w and 658n filters was combined for the red channel. Data from the 555w and 435w filters was mapped to the green and blue channels respectively.
