I've seen some interest here on the subject, so I thought I would post this link for those that may not be aware of it. It is a site with lots of dramatic photos from the Hubbel telescope.

I always enjoy posts like that, thanks! Here's an interesting bit on a neutron star. http://dsc.discovery.com/news/afp/20050214/magnetar.html
"We have observed an object only 20 kilometers (12 miles) across, on the other side of our galaxy, releasing more energy in a 10th of a second than the sun emits in 100,000 years." Now that is totally mind boggling.
