A few crops from a 1x1 degree mosaic image, composed from g, r and z-band data in the SpARCS ELAIS-N2-P1 field (as B, V and R channels). Total exposure time is about 3h, with the MEGAPRIME camera installed on the 3.6m Canada-France Hawaii Telescope

The original image is 4.7 Gb, so I had to crop some more interesting regions.

Hundreds of galaxies in just a few arcminutes

The power of a 4m class telescope is still great! :) More images to come soon, as I see interesting regions in the data I have.
