Large Binocular Telescope's 111 Mega pixel camera.

A researcher's gloved hands hold a delicate sensor with 111 million light-sensing pixels in a dust- and static-free room at the University of Arizona's Imaging Technology Laboratory. It cost $150,000 and required months to manufacture. Two of these sensors will be installed in one of the Large Binocular Telescope's cameras.
