Creating a Hubble Galaxy in Two Minutes

Here's one for all you space freaks and image manipulators!!! This short bit of film demonstrates what exactly goes into the making of a Hubble image once the RAW data is collected from the telescope. Obviously the film is sped up and condensed into a couple of minutes but I found it very interesting indeed. The one thing it doesn't tell you though is how long the process takes in real time.
