very blue

    This object seems to be decidedly blue, could this just be down to blue shift or could the chemical compassion play a part?

    Hi doktorrobster and welcome to the Zoo

    The object in the center of the image is a fuzzy, barred spiral. The images with the mostly blue and pink tints are infrared images. So, the blue colour in this image has nothing to do with the chemical composition or blueshift !

    Happy hunting !
