An ultradeep image that’s *full* of galaxies!

I came across this blog where an image of 250MB was posted of a 4.1 meter telescope overlooking in the southern hemisphere.

OK, I know. At first glance it doesn’t look like much, does it? Just a field of stars. However, here’s the important bit: I had to take the somewhat larger original image and reduce it in size to fit my 610-pixel-wide blog. So how much bigger is the original?

It’s 17,000 x 11,000 pixels! If you happen to be sitting on a T1 line, then you can grab this massive 250 Mb file. And I surely suggest you do.

I conducted a search but couldn't find anything and this blog was posted on 23 March 2012.

Hope you can download it now, as for me I have to wait until I'm done work!

Images like this always surprise me each day, but often times I can't help but feel like I have seen the same thing before (which is not a jab at the OP!)
Though kind of makes me wonder what everything looks like out there..

Thank you; love it! Great desktop background.

I "embiggend" it (hehe), and just right-clicked and copy/pasted it into my photo editor. Took me about 5 seconds.
No download needed!

The universe is just too big to grasp.

what NASA should do is setup another deepspace telescope outside our solar system,

i wonder if this hydrogen wall pictured is obscuring our vision like our own atmosphere was.

I created a thread about this picture six days ago:

200 000 galaxies in this 6 TB IR photo!! Deepest IR sky view ever taken

The Herschel picture dubbed "galaxies like grains of sand" would kick this pictures ass in a fight.

every dot is another galaxy. (been my screen saver for a few years)

edit- you cn still have a flag and a star though, cos it is a very purdy picture.
