Wonderful Terapix image

I have just come across the wonderful Terapix image taken in 2004 – wow! The image was obtained with “Megacam”, a giant 36-CCD camera mounted at prime focus of the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope (CFHT) on Mauna Kea. It just blows me away, to give you a quick glimpse see below and you should take a look at the actual image [here]
