    Large and brightly coloured celestial object with several points emitting strong beams of light. Is it a star?

    I know it is a star, but is it actually resolving the star's surface? It looks like it is.

    No, the star would be less than a pixel wide. The light spreads out in the mirrors and lenses.

    Oh, that makes sense. Has there ever been a picture of a star- besides the sun- that actually resolves the star's surface?
