Colorized 2D spectra of Gliese 486 (near-infrared)

Colorized 2D spectra of star Gliese 486 as seen with MAROON-X. The two spectra are from the two camera arms of MAROON-X. Each spectrum covers 650–920 nm and the vast majority of this spectral range can not be perceived with the eye. Scientist Andreas Seifahrt chose a purple/red gradient as a representative color representation.
