On these pages you see what no one has ever seen before - the oldest and most remote star worlds ever photographed by man. These are the first official pictures to be taken by the world's largest stargazer, the long-awaited 200-inch Hale telescope on Palomar Mountain in California. The light that made the pictures started on its journey back in the dawn of our world, when primitive light was just beginning to stir on earth.
