That is so "up close and personal" (bright) I hardly recognise it!

I had to check with HST to get my bearings.

Very impressive.

(Compare with HST's very best pic of that area:

LMAO Tom .................................it was me in the 1st place that jokingly said "Get closer".

It is a fantastic image.

I think it is the closest image i have ever seen of an M object ever.

It's actually scarey while being AMAZING.
