The sharpest image ever taken of the large "grand design" spiral galaxy M81 was released 9. June 2007 at the American Astronomical Society Meeting in Honolulu, Hawaii.

A spiral-shaped system of stars, dust, and gas clouds, the galaxy's arms wind all the way down into the nucleus. Though the galaxy is located 11.6 million light-years away, the Hubble Space Telescope's view is so sharp that it can resolve individual stars, along with open star clusters, globular star clusters, and even glowing regions of fluorescent gas. The Hubble data was taken with the Advanced Camera for Surveys in 2004 through 2006. This colour composite was assembled from images taken in blue, visible, and infrared light.

Got it. Now its off to find a monitor worthy enough to show this image in all its glory.

 

Width: 22620 pixels

 

Height: 15200 pixels

 

ETA:  Tried to see it on this laptop. "Insufficient memory", it warned.

 

ETA 2: The JPEG image makes for a really cool wallpaper!

To err is Human. To blame it on someone else is even more Human.

You are correct, It's so weird, Windows can load it as a desktop background (took about 5 minutes), but Adobe Fireworks can't open it at all?
