The image - which is the first of its kind - was created using two cameras from the Hubble: The new Wide Field Camera 3 and the Advanced Camera for Surveys. The WFC3 captured a series of images in September and October, after its installation. The ACS took them in 2004. After lots of post-processing and matching work, they came up with this overwhelming result. [NASA]
