Pictures of Observation 15277C000

To make a picture from the data taken on the telescope, we need to process it. This is because the data has much more information than our eyes can see in one go. So it's possible to make many different pictures from the same observation.

We've created four slightly different pictures from this observation. The minimum detail option is usually good for bright objects, like the Moon and planets; it shows you what you would first see when opening the image in our software. The other options all show slightly more faint light from the object. We need this when looking at objects much further from Earth, like galaxies and nebulae.
