A Wide-field view of the sky around the young star T Cha (annotated)

This visible-light wide-field image of the region around the young star T Cha was created from photographs taken through red and blue filters and forming part of the Digitized Sky Survey 2. The star appears close to the centre. Some of the dust associated with this star-forming region is faintly visible in the background, particularly at the upper left.
