Hi all,

Check out this image of the LMC taken by the Spitzer Infra-red Space Telescope!

If your ISP can handle the volume, download the 10 Mb version, the detail is amazing. The other amazing thing is that the image covers over 7 degrees!!!!! To get an image that size required the mosiacing of some 300,000 individual images!!!! 8O And I complain about mosiacing 3 or 4!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
