Virgo Cluster (ICFIELD3)

Telescope: Hubble Space Telescope, 2.4m Reflector, 57.6m FL
Camera: Advanced Camera for Surveys, Spectral range 350–1100 nm, about 3' x 3' field of view, two adjacent 2048 x 4096 pixels
Exposure: 17.6 hours, F606W filter. Converted data from FITS to TIFF linearly using FITLiberator with Stretch=Linear, Background=0.0, Peak=1.0, Scaled=1.0 Processed with StarTools and Photoshop.
Image Center (J2000): RA 12h 28m, DEC 12° 33''

Small section of the Virgo Cluster. Unable to identify any galaxy or star in this image, probably none are cataloged. I believe this image has not been published by the Hubble Heritage team. About 0.85' square cropped from a much larger field VIRGO-ICFIELD3, imaged to 30th mag. The proposal was submitted to search for the Virgo Cluster''s intracluster Globular Clusters.
