Highlights from the VST image of Messier 17

This montage shows six cutouts from the new VST image of the star-forming region Messier 17, also known as the Omega Nebula or Swan Nebula. Although the wide field encompasses the entire nebula and its surroundings, the VST and OmegaCAM deliver sharp images that show many fascinating details.
