3.2 Billion Pixel Camera

The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) has 189 sensors and 3 tons of components compressed in a tight space to give a powerful view of the entire visible sky every week.

It will shoot 6 million gigabytes of images per year–equivalent of shooting roughly 800,000 images with a regular eight-megapixel digital camera.
