Galaxies

The Blanco Telescope is fitted with a large array of CCD sensors performing an all-sky survey of galaxies. This shows one of the s screens showin one image from the previous night. Each of the blocks represent a CCD sensor. Almost all of the objects in these images are galaxies. Do click on the image to see the full size view. The blurring of the close-up galaxies are from motion of my camera while taking the picture, the image on the screens is sharp.
