Picknic'd Adler Visualization

Picknic’d Adler Milkly Way, originally uploaded by NDeRC2.

…Couldn’t resist trying Flickr’s’ new Picnik add-in with the full Adler visualization. A very cool toolset: easy to use, reasonably powerful. For those who want to take a run at producing their own astroimages (as I’ve done with cell phone from Adler’s somewhat nicer images:), go to sky.google.com, browse until you find something you like, worm your way through to the Aladin applet, upload multiwavelength .fits images, and use the image processing tools in the applet. See some student-created images of this sort here.
