Man, I gotta get one of these VISTA telescopes from the Chileans. This thing recently took a picture of the sky that contains over 200,000 galaxies.
To put that in context, Phil Plait writes:
I’ve spent years studying all this, and it still sometimes gets to me: just how flipping BIG the Universe is! And this picture is still just a tiny piece of it: it’s 1.2 x 1.5 degrees in size, which means it’s only 0.004% of the sky! And it’s not even complete: more observations of this region are planned, allowing astronomers to see even deeper yet.
