This zoom sequence opens with a wide-field view of the constellation of Orion. As we zoom in on Orion's sword, the famous nebula starts to come into view. The final scene showcases the new image of the Orion Nebula taken with the Wide Field Imager on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at ESO's La Silla Observatory in Chile.
