Space-based telescopes like the Hubble are sharp and clear no atmosphere in the way but expensive. The Lucky Camera works with conventional telescopes, on the ground. It snaps up to 20 images per sec., sorts out the best ones and combines them into a picture sharper than the Hubble's at 1/50,000 the cost.
Available: Prototype; could be widely available by 2009
