KPNO Infrared JHK composite image of the Hubble Deep Field


This color composite image of the Hubble Deep Field was obtained with the IRIM infrared camera at the KPNO 4m Telescope. The J, H and K bands drive the blue, green and red guns of the image display, respectively, in this representation.

IRIM was rotated to an x-axis position angle of 67 degrees for the observations. The orientation of this image therefore matches that of the HST WFPC2 data, with NNW up and ENE left.
