Yes, on screen it looks under- well , not overwhelming, but take the full thing and look a bit deeper, you start to realise that there is real depth to the image.

They did a really poor job of showcasing this.

I agree, the stream was anemic!

There's stuff going on in that photo, they're not stars, they're not galaxies, there is something else no?

Photonic emissions from something other than concrete stars, another force at work at the beginning of time?

To have captured all that in just 12.5 hours is astonishing.

And when you remember watching the deployment not that long ago, and the dozens of things that could have gone wrong with it ... but didn't.
What an achievement.

Now, let's hope that micrometeorite was just a one-off.

Looking at the high res image my mind is mush when considering this is a patch of sky the size of a grain of sand at arms length. A 13 billion LY distant image, I wonder if it is just a product of processing or 

not but there are so many orange looking galaxies, are they proto galaxies?

If i had to guess they have somehow blueshifted the spectrum to be more like one would expect from a real colour image. The reddest spots would be the furthest Infrared targets in that case.

Would love to hear a technical explanation for the chosen palette.

Unbelievable!

 

I find I need to click on the image like 4 times to reach the actually high res image which is so large I have to scroll around but the details are astonishing!

No idea, just says: 

#23. SMACSJ0723.3-7327 (Merger, SZ-based)

 

It's at least two separate sessions,  you can tell by the offset diffraction spikes around the brightest star
