New Hubble Images

They have done it! After the last service mission earlier this year and some extensive testing of the instruments, Hubble is now back online and produces the first stunning images with the new cameras. Below you can find an example, higher resoultion pictures of the images can be found here. Take a look, they are great and so finely detailed, it's just amazing. Especially Stephan's Quintet is beautiful. Although pretty famous before, noone has ever seen it like this.
