Colours Assigned to Data
Artefacts: Note that a circular region in the upper right hand corner
has been coloured black. This covers artefacts from a
very bright radio source, Cygnus A. Some grid-like striations
are still visible just below this region. Although IRAS did not image
a strip in the very lower left corner, its absence has little impact on
this colour image.
