The Gregor solar telescope got a makeover and delivered some brilliant high-res views of the sun.

And now Gregor, a solar telescope is Spain, is getting in on the festivities.

Gregor’s team obtained "the highest-resolution images of the sun ever taken by a European telescope" after the telescope received an optical overhaul.

Earlier this year, a telescope in Hawaii delivered the highest-resolution image of the sun’s surface ever captured.

The Gregor telescope picked up this lovely view of a sunspot.

The team likens the capabilities of Gregor’s revamped eyes to being able to see the details of a needle on a soccer field from a kilometer away.
