A team of astronomers from the US and the UK has obtained some of the clearest pictures of space ever taken.

They were acquired using a new "adaptive optics" system which sharpens pictures taken from the Mount Palomar Observatory in California.

The images are twice as sharp as those from Hubble Space Telescope.

These images are comparisons of the same image taken with two different cameras. (Obviously the ones you want to look at are on the right):

They look pretty awesome if you ask me. True art. :p
