Gemini North Images for NOAO Press Release 99-08:


Image Caption: Planetary Nebula BD+303639
This is a color composite infrared image using adaptive optics on the Gemini North telescope. The stellar images show remarkable resolution that approaches the theoretical limit for an 8 meter telescope. (Resolution = 0.083 arc seconds FWHM.) Background information is available.

  • Image Caption: Star Forming Region G45.45+0.06
    This is a color composite infrared image made using adaptive optics on the Gemini North telescope. Dust obscures this star forming region at optical wavelengths, but it is visible at longer infrared wavelengths (resolution = 0.12 arc seconds FWHM). The composite was formed from three images taken in the H band (1.2 microns, blue), the K band (2.2 microns, green), and a narrow band around Brackett gamma emission (red). Background information is available. Photo Credit: Gemini Observatory, US National Science Foundation, and the University of Hawaii Institute for Astronomy.
