Sky field in Ophiuchus

The image shows the a new stellar system, as imaged with the ISAAC multi-mode instrument on the 8.2-m VLT ANTU telescope at Paranal during the follow-up observations. The circumstellar disk is well visible in the left part of the field as a shadow in front of the nebula. Many background galaxies are visible in this deep image and one edge-on galaxy is seen visible close to the image centre.

The image is based on the combination of three 10-min exposures in the mentioned infrared filters, obtained with the ISAAC instrument on the 8.2-m VLT ANTU telescope. The field measures 2.1 x 1.6 arcmin2. The seeing was 0.4 arcsec and the pixel size is 0.148 arcsec.
