The title just about says it all:
The Photopic Sky Survey is a 5,000 megapixel photograph of the entire night sky stitched together from 37,440 exposures. Large in size and scope, it portrays a world far beyond the one beneath our feet and reveals our familiar Milky Way with unfamiliar clarity. When we look upon this image, we are in fact peering back in time, as much of the light—having traveled such vast distances—predates civilization itself.
Play around with the super high-resolution image, get the desktop wallpaper, or get the print.
… get desk wallpaper? How?

I don’t know why I couldn’t find that. Thanks! I just put it on my new computer as my background.
