I saw a video recently that shows what the Hubble telescope sees when it looks into space. When we look up into the sky and see a big, black, blank area Hubble sees thousands of galaxies in the same area.

Obviously we can't see with this sort of power, but would it be possible to have a telescope that is super powerful that doesn't necessarily look into deep space?

Why haven't we developed a telescope that can focus in on a small area in our own galaxy to determine if there is some sort of fabrication present, like a space-ship.

If the Hubble deep field can see hundreds of thousands of light years into space, why can't the powerful telescope be focused in on more telling areas? Is it because the telescope isn't really seeing into space, but just picking up light that isn't visible to us?

With a telescope this powerful and sensitive it seems like the telescope could be directed to individual planets. When it is focused there it could zoom in and scan the surface of individual planets for life or civilizations.

To me it seems highly likely that this could work and probably has been initiated. Do any of you know whether this has been tried or not?

I read somewhere that the hubble telescope can only focus to within a 20 miles radius so if you zoomed onto a small town you could see it clearly but anything further would be pixelated.

As far as I know there is a limit on how close it can view much more then how far it can view. This is the case with all optics though.
