There has been a whole series of beautiful color images posted to the Gallery recently. Some one (or ones) has been using SkyView‘s RGB capabilities to combine data from multiple surveys into color images. This first image of the center of the Galaxy is one nice example.Center of the galaxy

Take a look in the Gallery and find your favorites. Or use the RGB overlays settings to generate your own. Generally to produce interesting pictures you’ll want to use surveys with comparable resolution.
