Three colour XMM-Newton image of the NGC 253 disc and nuclear region
Date: 29 January 2001
Depicts: NGC 253
Emission detected in all three EPIC instruments (MOS1, MOS2 and PN) have been merged together.
Red, green and blue show respectively (0.2-0.5) keV, (0.5-0.9) keV and (0.9-2.0) keV bands, while the hard
(2-10) keV emission is shown superimposed as contours. Shown in detail to the lower left is a
factor 2 zoom-in on the nuclear region. The ellipse indicates the optical extent of NGC 253.
