Now the really amazing thing about the ACS is its ability to see so much more than the target we are interested in. Designed for survey work the camera is the most sensitive and accurate to date, and as a result when taking photograph of this peculiar galaxy it managed to not only record a spectacular view of the Tadpole galaxy, but also reveals many hundereds of tiny (read distant) background galaxies, all with an unprecedented level of detail surpassing that of even the HDF which was shown in Julie’s talk last week.
