APOD Image of the Day
Since 1995, NASA Astronomy Picture of the Day (or NASA APOD) has been a web resource
of the best astronomy images. To meet the enthusiastic response from a world-wide
audience of astronomy and nature lovers, the daily annotated image is available on globe-spanning
mirror-sites in various languages. At a glance, these viewers might assume
that all gloriously star-studded cluster and fine filamentary nebulae images on
the site were products of the Hubble Space Telescope or other exotic
observatory. But as the examples below showcase, some of these "Hubble-quality"
images were produced with much smaller, portable Tele Vue scopes!
