<p><br />considering the first-ever direct photos of extrasolar planets that were announced a day or two ago: would it be possible to get a much closer look at the planet orbiting fomalhaut by a very long exposure using the hubble telescope - as it did to capture the famous "ultra deep field" image? </p><p><br /></p>

Hubble time is precious, so it will be distrubuted as best as can be done. I don't think there will be much more to be learned by longer exposures, but you never know!</p><p>This is a duplicate of a thread that has been going for a few days in the Space Science and Astronomy Forum. As such, I am going to close this thread and redirect you there.
