A 1.5 billion pixel picture of Andromeda Galaxy taken by Hubble Space Telescope!

"This is a cropped version of the full image and has 1.5 billion pixels. You would need more than 600 HD television screens to display the whole image. It is the biggest Hubble image ever released and shows over 100 million stars and thousands of star clusters embedded in a section of the galaxy’s pancake-shaped disc stretching across over 40 000 light-years." -Hubble Website

Look at it for yourself: http://www.spacetelescope.org/images/he ... /zoomable/
