Hubble pics

I am looking around for new space pics to make into avatars and have found many lovely pictures at this site. Y'all might want to check it out sometime, it's pretty cool.

Are you aware of NASA Astronomy Pic of the Day website?

Those are awesome photos.

I wonder what kind of camera they use? LOL

Cool one Bob, I just bookmarked it. Thanks.

I'm sure the cameras are beyond my wildest imaginings. I saw the camera attached to one of the big scopes at McDonald Observatory, and it was some sort of dry-ice cooled quarter-million-dollar job. And that was several years ago. The Hubble cameras are doubtless much more advanced than that.

I love Hubble photos. It will be replaced by another space telescope of greater capabilities in a few years, after its final servicing in 2010.
