Lets be real, probably never. Theres only so much advancement that can be made with even the most advanced telescopes we have, its physical limitations, not computing power or digital. Most likely we will always be left to illustrations.

You're severely understimating our capabilities. Making an array of telescopes in a large enough area would allow us to resolve far away objects pretty easily. We already do this here on earth, and even as we circle the sun, now imagine if we managed to get telescopes in an array much larger than our straight path around the sun.
