Two Fields in the Hyades

These are two `true colour' ROSAT images of fields in the Hyades cluster (data taken from the ROSAT data archive). The first image is centered on the star HD 27991, the second image is about 50 arcmin to the south. A detailed analysis of the second image can be found in Stern et al. 1994, ApJ 427, 808.
