    Natural colors are NOT made up of the basic colors. It's simply not true! The basic colors allow us to artificially create the same stimuli as the light at a specific wavelength. Your monitor can only produce three colors, your eye sees a spectrum that we artificially create.

                          The universe is a beautiful place you don't need color to see that🙂

                            *If we are going to believe that this colorization is 100% accurate, then let them recreate that Russian scientist experiment. They should take a picture of someone in black and white and also in color. Then give the black and white version to a color expert who has NOT seen the original color photo. If the person can recreate exactly the original color based on this technique, then we will know that these space photo colorization technique gives the right result.*

                            still don't get it, so Hubble captured THREE b/w images in each channel? (Red, Blue, and Green?)

                                  I think I missed something. If making a black and white photo into a color photo is as easy as applying filters and a specific color, why are people spending hundreds of hours hand coloring historic photos?

                                        I am an astrophotographer and this video is SPOT-ON. This is exactly how Hubble (and I) use a mono camera and filters to image the cosmos in color.

                                          @Rahim LaQuica combining rgb frames + some other ones like ha create images with their actual color. Dslr's can actually see the color but they don't gather as much light as mono cameras.

                                          How do you know that the final result is what the thing (galaxy, planet whatever) "actually" looks like (= how your human eye would see it if you were in a spaceship near it)?

                                            This is very good to have. We really need this level of explanation, not just to science pursuers and people passionate about knowledge, but for amateur astronomers and photographers as well, for really grasping the understanding about capturing light from deep space. The Universe gave us its "formula" and now we must do the best we can to reach out for it, for everything that is.
