True-colour picture of the distant galaxy EIS 47 in the "Hubble Deep Field South" sky field. The area measures 32 x 32 arcsec 2. It is the result of a combination of exposures in seven different wavebands from the ultraviolet to the infrared spectral region (U, B, V, R, I, J, H and K), obtained at the ESO New Technology Telescope (NTT) during the EIS survey. The total exposure times were 5, 1.8, 3.4, 1.5, 2.4, 3, 1 and 3 hours, respectively.
