Yes, great views we could never get from any earth-bound instruments. Much of the beauty and wonder of the universe can be captured from here; observe the Palomar views of the beautiful Rosette Nebula .

Thought I'd add one of the most famous photos taken by the orbiting Hubble telescope: continuing Creation(or creation, if you prefer)in gigantic pillars of gas and dust giving birth to new stars.

It has been a few years since I dragged out my Dobsonian telescope I made back in college in Astronomy class, but I was able to get some very nice views of Saturn, Jupitor, etc. and their moons, not to mention galaxies...

Enjoy.

I figure anyone is this thread has astronomy interest, so I wanted to make sure everyone knew that there is a total lunar eclipse tonight. I'm just hoping the rain and clouds stay away. The moon will be in totality when it rises in the east. The further east you are the better for this one. Those on the west coast get their chance in late August with another one. Space.com has a couple articles. Here's one to start: Total Eclipse of the Moon

We shouldn't forget the carbon-based life forms here on earth who produce incredible images of the cosmos. Here is a 15-tile mosaic of the moon, shot by an amateur astronomer who frequents a photography forum I haunt...

The Moon

And here is his web site with many more photos...

Noel Carboni

He's really quite accomplished at this sort of thing.
