SUMMARY: Here's a 1024x768 desktop wallpaper from a deep field image taken by the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope to celebrate its 25th anniversary. This part is actually just a fraction of the full image that contains more than half a million galaxies in just a one-degree square field of the sky. Once one of the larger telescopes in the world, the 3.6-metre instrument has been updated regularly with state of the art technology including adaptive optics and a 340 mega pixel digital camera.
