Galaxies

Galaxies

This image, taken from the Hubble Deep Field, contains many different galaxies of various types.

Galaxies are easily differentiated from stars as they don't have 'diffraction spikes' - four right-angled spikes of light which are caused by the small arms holding the Secondary mirror on a reflector telescope.

A spiral galaxy similar to ours is labelled on the image - this is what The Milky Way would probably look like from this distance.
