Hubble Images are Produced, Not Taken

Images must be woven together from the incoming data from the cameras, cleaned up and given colors that bring out features that eyes would otherwise miss. In this video from HubbleSite, a Hubble-imaged galaxy comes together on the screen.

They’re not just ‘pretty space pics’ there is a lot of work going on before the end result. And this is an idea of how it happens.

Wow, neat!

Top: Process sketch, peacock brooch.

Bottom: Glass peacock brooch. Rene Lalique (1860-1945). Ca. 1902-1903.Gold, enamel, glass, diamonds, white sapphires. 5.5cm. First posted here.

Process sketches are amazing. They allow us to see into the artist’s mind, to see the small changes and the evolution of a piece. Note the addition of leaves.
