Hubble images are made, not born. Images must be woven together from the incoming data from the cameras, cleaned up and given colors that bring out features that eyes would otherwise miss. In this video from HubbleSite.org, online home of the Hubble Space Telescope, a Hubble-imaged galaxy comes together on the screen at super-fast speed.

We were all expecting something GRAND for our massive efforts down the line. Needless to say, all the money went to drive us 100km from home and play frisbee golf for a week at a "resort" aimed for trips for retarded people"
yeah that doesn't mean the objects are fake, its just not possible to capture an image of something like a galaxy or a nebula with an optical lens alone. the exposures on those things are average 9 hours, and they do it in pieces and then put the images together. shit like protostars you can't see without infrared. it's not disappointing, that doesn't necessarily mean that isn't what the objects look like. it's just a lot of work to put the images together.
thats how brainfarm filmed the new "In Flight" movie they have coming out. for a couple shots they actually commissioned another giant space telescope to follow-cam the Hubble while it follow-cammed travis rice.
first they were just gonna use RED cameras and shoot the whole thing in 3d, but they found that the hubble telescope option was much more expensive and chose that instead.
im invincible, nobody and nothing can tell me otherwise
The pictures to a certain extent are false, but the clouds of dust and fields of starts and galaxies are still there. Instead of false color, just think of it as a wider spectrum that we're trying to visualize.
