CLOUDCROFT, NM - A telescope just south of Cloudcroft, NM is putting the universe in new perspective.

The telescope is recording the most precise, digital color images of the universe ever made.

They are made of more than a trillion pixels put together from at least 7 million digital images.

The Sloan Digital Sky Survey near Cloudcroft made it all possible.

A telescope has been capturing the images since 1998.
