Astronomical images

Images presented here are direct FITS-to-JPG/PNG conversions of standard reduced images produced by ADRAS. Thus, their image scale is 0.45 arcsec per pixel.

Centaurus A Three-colour composite of Centaurus A. Blue channel is 300 seconds in V-band, green is 100 seconds in R-band and red channel is 100 seconds in I-band.
M8 Three-colour composite of M8. To increase the dynamics range of the images, each colour channel consists of three stacked exposures: 20 seconds in I-band (red), 20 seconds in R-band (green) and 40 seconds in V-band (blue).
PKS 2155-204 60 seconds R-band exposure of PKS 2155-304. This is one of the main targets of ATOM and is observed approximately every three nights during its visibility period.
