Thanks for posting! The achievment is even more remarkable for the fact that the images were taken with land-based based telescopes, not the Hubble. Nevertheless, the attached image taken by Hubble remains my personal favorite.

Computer controlled adaptive optics have revolutionized ground-based telescopes. Wait until the next next generation of super-sized scopes comes online, all equipped with such adaptive optics. :)

Great, it's bad enough we just demoted poor Pluto,
People are still contesting that decision. hehehe Now they've decided to call such "dwarf" planets "plutoids." Where's it all gonna end?
