A portion of the new Hubble mosaic image of the Orion nebula. Nasa describe the full image as the most detailed astronomical image ever recorded and at 325 Megapixels they may be right.....

The new year is full of time. As the seconds tick away, will you be tossing time out the window, or will you make every minute count?

Here's one I could fall into. It's so marvelous you could mine the whole 325 for a gallery of images and not go wrong. Even with the latest probe on its way, I still think Hubble is our greatest achievement. It's images like this that can get the intrest of the masses up

Orion didnít look like that when I had a gander last night:-) Itís an awesome image, not just for itís beauty but for the thoughts it provokes about the immensity and complexity of this so called empty space around us.

Wow Phil...I just got this image in the voting booth. I don't know how I missed it the first time around, but I am sure glad I found it now! The colors here are stunning as is the star field. It is amazing to me what we (as in the space people) are discovering exists in that place we used to call "out of this world"......as photography improves, that world is now our world to view...especially when you take the time to find these images, clean them up and do all the preparatory work so they can be posted as high quality images on caedes.net. Your efforts are not unnoticed. Thank you my friend :~)
