Create Three-Color Mosaics On Your Desktop!

If you want to do this, then a set of C-shell scripts kindly contributed by Dr. Colin Aspin (University of Hawaii) makes the task easy for you. He contributed three scripts that will compute three-color mosaics of data from three projects: 2MASS (J, H and K), the Digitized Sky Surveys  (B, R and IR), and the Sloan Digital Sky Survey  (gr, i and z). You will, of course, first need to download and build Montage and grab data from the projects’ archives.

The image below was computed with the 2MASS script.
