I have tried everything but i cannot obtain somehow the composited data together (there is no such function as comp_map.data, for example). Using get.data() function will only give me the data of the one or the other map, separately, while I want the new overplotted data all together.

Hi Evangelina,

What exactly do you mean by "obtain the composited data in a new FITS
file"?  As I understand it, from both the documentation and looking at
the code, the CompositeMap just saves a list of multiple maps, and
when plotting them overlays one on the other depending on their
relative z-order.

Do you just want the rasterized pixels of the resulting RGB image?
