it's 4400x2214. let me know when you feel like hosting a higher-res image on your server for thousands of downloads.

anyway, you're talking about an image over 100K light years across with maybe 100 billion stars in view. you want the whole thing in hi rez? best way to get that is by using a telescope!

Hey, both of you!
This website is for reference pics, not originals.
If you need the real thing/actual size/exact colors/fancy formats, then u get ur lazy butts to the source.
Sometimes it has a link, sometimes u have to find it yourself, so deal with it.

FYI:
For a collection of WISE images released to date, visit: http://wise.ssl.berkeley.edu/gallery_images.html

An introduction and quick guide to accessing the WISE all-sky archive for astronomers is online at: http://wise2.ipac.caltech.edu/docs/release/allsky/

Instructions for technically minded individuals wanting to try their hand at using the archive are at: http://wise.ssl.berkeley.edu/wise_image_service.html

For more information about WISE, visit: http://www.nasa.gov/wise, http://wise.astro.ucla.edu and http://jpl.nasa.gov/wise .
