Globular cluster M28 in Sagittarius, is shown here in about true color.
Note the slightly elliptical shape of this cluster.
This image was stretched to show the inner regions which are usually
saturated in most pictures of the cluster.
It was created from data taken in November 1998 at the KPNO 0.9-meter
telescope. Image size is 8.5 arc minutes.
Infrared image of globular cluster M28, created from photographic data obtained with the 2MASS IR telescopes, from the 2MASS atlas. As all IR images, this is a false-color image. As all the 2MASS atlas images, colors are used to code different IR wavelength bands, or IR colors. Here, blue codes shortest-wavelength, nearest or warmest IR radiation, and red longest-wavelength, fasthest or coolest IR. Field of view of this image is 6.7 x 6.7 arc minutes.
