MS0302 field seen with the UH8K mosaic camera
These images were constructed from a set of 11 I-band and 7 V-band exposures each of 15 mins duration taken at the CFHT telescope and imaged onto the UH's 8K x 8K pixel camera. The field contains two bright X-ray selected clusters and also contains a third Dressler-Gunn cluster. The intensity of the pixels (though not their colours) in this rendering have been logarithmically scaled in order to reveal both the bright galaxies and the much fainter 'cosmic wallpaper' of background galaxies.
