Deutsch: Das Hubble Ultra Deep Field ist ein Bild einer kleinen Himmelsregion aufgenommen vom Hubble-Weltraumteleskop über einen Zeitraum vom 3. September 2003 bis 16. Januar 2004. Dabei wurde eine Himmelsregion ausgewählt, die kaum störende helle Sterne im Vordergrund enthält. Man entschied sich für ein Zielgebiet südwestlich von Orion im Sternbild Chemischer Ofen (auch Fornax genannt).
English: The Hubble Ultra Deep Field, is an image of a small region of space in the constellation Fornax, composited from Hubble Space Telescope data accumulated over a period from September 3, 2003 through January 16, 2004. The patch of sky in which the galaxies reside was chosen because it had a low density of bright stars in the near-field.
