Nebula in Serpens

This image shows a close-up view of detector 1 of HAWK-I. Despite a total exposure time of only 1 minute in each of three infrared filters, the image shows great detail in this million-year old region, revealing red young stars, reflection nebulae and dark clouds of gas and dust very clearly.
