Hi all,

Thought this image was worth linking to. It is an incredibly deep image taken at the ESO. 40 HOURS!!!! 8O of exposure at UV plus blue and red. Apparently it is the deepest ground-based image obtained yet.

You should download the full resolution version of the image (warning 32MB!) The detail is amazing and the number of galaxies in the image is insane!

The link below takes you to the information about the image. To get to the actual image, click on the thumbnail.

Cheers,

Maurice
