CCDtoRGB: RGB image production from three-band astronomical images

[c]CCDtoRGB: RGB image production from three-band astronomical images[/c][/b]
Abstract: CCDtoRGB produces red‐green‐blue (RGB) composites from three‐band astronomical images, ensuring an object with a specified astronomical color has a unique color in the RGB image rather than burnt‐out white stars. Use of an arcsinh stretch shows faint objects while simultaneously preserving the structure of brighter objects in the field, such as the spiral arms of large galaxies.
