Deep Zoom Into Andromeda: Exploring the Largest Hubble Image Ever Taken. [click on image to enlarge view] It’s like photographing a beach and resolving individual grains of sand. NASA recently released the largest Hubble Space Telescope image ever assembled, displaying sweeping views of a portion of the Andromeda galaxy (M31). Though the galaxy is over 2 million light-years away, the Hubble telescope is powerful enough to resolve individual stars in a 61,000-light-year-long section of the galaxy’s pancake-shaped disk. Over 100 million stars can be seen in this image. - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=udAL48P5NJU&feature=player_embedded#t=0 And you can find all of the high-res images and videos here. - http://hubblesite.org/newscenter/archive/releases/2015/02/
