Wide-field image of the sky around the globular star cluster NGC 3201

This wide field view shows the sky around the globular star cluster NGC 3201 in the southern constellation of Vela (The Sails). As well as the rich cluster itself, which appears at the centre, this view also reveals huge numbers of stars within the Milky Way, along with a few much more distant galaxies. This picture was created from images forming part of the Digitized Sky Survey 2.
