The color Combination winner for the Observational Astronomy lab this year are Jennifer Medina and Andres Medina. They took raw CCD frames and calibration frames taken from the SARA South telescope in Chile in three different frequency bands. These images were processed and combined to make a color image of the galaxy. Congratulations Jennifer and Andres! Great work.
