Following the CFHT
legacy survey, other surveys will also be using Space Warps as a means to find lens systems in their data.
The winners received an hour's worth of observing time with Gemini North and the CFHT
, which are both partially owned and operated by Canada.
This accumulated images over five years using the wide field imaging camera MegaCam, a 1 degree by 1 degree field-of-view, 340 Megapixel camera on the CFHT
Usually I prefer the Hubble palette, but for some objects, such as the Veil Nebula, the CFHT
palette looks better to me.
Team members from CNRS, CEA, CFHT
, and the Observatoire de Lyon, studying two elliptical galaxies exhibiting features characteristic of a fairly recent merging, suggested that they are five times younger than commonly thought.
