Zooming in on the Fornax Galaxy cluster

This video sequence takes us deep into the faint southern constellation of Fornax (The Furnace). Here we find a rich concentration of bright galaxies — the Fornax Galaxy Cluster. The final very detailed image is a new image of the cluster from the VLT Survey Telescope.
