A Note on Color Tables

The color tables used to display AIA images here are the ones used to display similar bandpasses for SOHO EIT and STEREO EUVI images. The color tables preferred by the AIA Principal Investigator Team can be found in the images at the LMSAL Sun Today site.

Color tables for the 94, 131, and 335 Å bandpasses are still under development.
