    Default Hubble images



    For a really awe inspiring journey through our universe

    check out this site

    HubbleSite - Picture Album

    Attached is a copy of Tuc 47 from Hubble and my image taken last year in comparison

    Tuc 47 apparently contains 35000 stars but who's counting and too think people wonder why we do what we do

    Cheers

    Nice comparison there trevor .


    This ultra deep field picture taken by the Hubble of a small section of the edge of the Observable Universe is mind boggling to me (56k warning/Hi-Rez/blow it up and see whats out there)--> CLICK HERE


    What would we know without the Hubble?

    Hi Trevor
    Nice comparison of images comparing what billions of dollars of expense and technology can do compared to the humble back yard setup. If I had to choose between these two in a competition I would have to choose yours as although it doesn't quite have the same detail as the hubble shot, it portrays the object much better in its surroundings, in particular you can actually see what it is ie a globular cluster
    Best wishes
