A renewed and rebuilt US telescope is now able to send its sharpest and best quality images till date. Now Hubble Telescope is able to capture deepest images of this cosmic beauty. Earlier this year Hubble Telescope was upgraded, which included installation of two new camera’s, new instruments and replacing broken parts, with cost nearly a  billion dollar. Here is a collection of most recent images from the upgraded Hubble Telescope and some images which were taken by same Hubble Telescope before the upgrade.

This image shows the planetary nebula, catalogued as NGC 6302, but more popularly called the Bug Nebula or the Butterfly Nebula. The Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3), a new camera aboard NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope was installed by NASA astronauts in May 2009, during the servicing mission to upgrade and repair the 19-year-old Hubble telescope. NGC 6302 lies within our Milky Way galaxy, roughly 3,800 light-years away in the constellation Scorpius. The glowing gas is the star’s outer layers, expelled over about 2,200 years. The “butterfly� stretches for more than two light-years, which is about half the distance from the Sun to the nearest star, Alpha Centauri

This NASA Hubble Space Telescope image creates a picture composed of gas and dust, the pillar resides in a tempestuous stellar nursery called the Carina Nebula, located 7,500 light-years away in the southern constellation Carina. The image shows that astronomers are given a much more complete view of the pillar and its contents when distinct details not seen at visible wavelengths are uncovered in near-infrared light. Scorching radiation and fast winds (streams of charged particles) from these stars are sculpting the pillar and causing new stars to form within it. Streamers of gas and dust can be seen flowing off the top of the structure.
