RSS 2nd Light Image

On the night of April 9 we took the first images with the freshly refurbished and reinstalled RSS spectrograph. The images are of the globular cluster Omega Centauri and were taken in two passbands at 629 nm and 434 nm. The images were combined to remove the gaps between the CCDs and then processed into a single colour image shown below. Enjoy!
