A 268-Megapixel image of our night sky


For most of the part, the images of space we see come from radio or IR telescopes, it is very rare to actually come across an image that was captured with a visible light telescope. ESO’s VLT Survey Telescope (VST) has a visible-light telescope at its heart. And the 268-megapixel camera OmegaCAM has captured some of the most intriguing images of the universe. You kind of expect great quality when your camera weighs 1700 lb.
